Pink-footed and Barnacle geese are usually the main visitors as they stop off in the area to refuel before heading north to the Arctic.

Greylag, Greenland white-fronted and brent geese are also expected to be spotted.

A number of events have been arranged including a Goose bus allowing you to see the geese in comfort on 27, March 2011.

Further details are available on this leaflet – Wild Goose Chase 2011 (.pdf) (0)
