Ringed Brent Goose

A ringed Brent Goose was among a small flock grazing on the slipway at Ballyvaughan Harbour. 
I sent the sighting in to Graham McElwaine of The Irish Brent Goose and he was kind enough to send me back a little info :
1st ringed in Iceland on 16/05/2015, being observed each year in October returned to Ireland at Strangford lough and has been recorded in winter within Galway bay now over 4 times.
I fine looking bird too.
