A Brent Goose : A piece of its History

While at Clahane today there was a flock of 42 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, one of which I noticed was Colour ringed.I forwarded the photo and sighting to the Irish Brent Geese research group, and as usual you receive an interesting piece of info .


The bird 39LY was 1st ringed 19/5/2006 in SW Iceland.Trending to arrive for winter in october via Stragford lough ..moves south, mainly spending its winters mostly  in the Tralee ,Kerry area,also seen in Clare at Bartra in march 2008 and Seafield in 2009and 2012.
