SouthseaSouthseaa field fenced off for arrival of migrating geese (1 Viewer)


Picture Picker
A large coastal space in Southsea is to be fenced off to the public to create a refuge for brent geese.

Natural England has chosen Castle Field for the birds until March to offset the use of Clarence Playing Field during ongoing sea defence works.

The site usually used by the geese is currently a works compound area.

The council was required to make an alternative provision for the birds, which arrive in large flocks from early October, by Natural England.

The field is expected to be fenced off by Monday for the geese which migrate to the area from Siberia to feed and roost.
