26th January: Wintering goose calls

You may recall our posts from last summer about bird calls from our breeding birds, including the different calls of several tern species. We are following this up with some 'sounds of winter birds', a mini-guide to some calls you might hear if you're visiting the NNR during January and February.

This week we're bringing you an audio guide to the wintering geese of the Reserve - if you spot skeins of geese flying overhead, often the best way to identify them is by their call. Please press play on the following players to hear each species.

Brent goose

Barnacle goose

Pink-footed goose

Greylag goose

Next week: a guide to Lindisfarne's wintering wader calls.
