The Bean Goose  

The Bean Goose winters on our shores in small numbers in Norfolk and Scotland, with Mid-Yare Nature Reserve being a particularly good spot to see them from October to March.

The Bean Goose breeds in the northern areas of Europe, Scandinavia and Asia over the summer months , often above the tree line in wet, swampy areas with good vegetation cover. Their numbers have been declining over the past 30 years due to a variety of factors, with the global population estimates currently standing at around 200,000 individuals.
