Light bellied brent geese migrate 5000km from their breeding grounds in Canada to winter in Ireland and West Galloway. Join us for an online session dedicated to this fantastic and beautiful bird.

This is a joint online event from two UNESCO Biospheres: Dublin Bay Biosphere and Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere. Learn about the Dublin Bay Brent Goose Project and their unique population of urban wintering brent geese.

We will then hear from Dr Larry Griffin about the brent goose populations that winter in West Galloway. Will there be similarities in behaviour and habits between the two geese populations, or will there be touch of Irish charm in the Dublin Bay birds? This online event is sponsored by the Rhins of Galloway Coast Path.
