Red-breasted goose (Branta ruficollis)

  • Gleb Berloff
This winter, a vagrant red-breasted goose overwintered at WWT Slimbridge with a flock of barnacle geese. It was suggested as being a genuine vagrant by several birdwatcher. I took this photograph completely by accident from a massive distance and was actually in shock when I saw that I got it. This is the rarest bird I have yet seen.
