Pink-footed geese at Four Roads Turlough SPA

During our bird survey work yesterday we recorded four Pink-footed geese at Four Roads Turlough SPA in Co Roscommon. Pink-footed Geese are a scarce visitor to Ireland and usually associating with other wintering geese such as Greenland-White-fronts. These were the only geese present on Four Roads Turlough SPA yesterday, although we did record a flock of 45 Greenland white-fronted geese nearby on the River Suck and these geese also use Four Roads Turlough.
