Red-breasted geese on Texel island


This video shows a lone red-breasted goose among flocks of grey lag geese and barnacle geese in Kieldrecht, Belgium on 3 December 2015.

This east European species is rare in western Europe.

Marc Plomp mentions on Twitter today that four red-breasted geese are wintering now in nature reserve De Bol on Texel island.
