TAIGA AMERICAN WHITE-FRONTED GEESE in OXFORDSHIRE







Investigations are ongoing into the origin of these two geese, photographed here by Adam Hartley with one of seven Bar-headed Geese and a single Snow Goose all part of a 500+ throng of moulting ornamental or non-naturalised geese surviving in Blenheim Palace Park.
Did they arrive as wild birds in spring 2004 and merely end up joining these local geese or did they escape from captivity in the first place?
