Light-bellied Brent Geese
"Almost the entire world population of Light-bellied Brent Geese (perhaps 22,000 birds) migrate from the Canadian Arctic, where they breed in the summer months, to Ireland where they overwinter. In an epic journey that takes the majority of birds over Greenland, stopping off in Iceland to feed up, ultimately to Strangford Lough, where they arrive in October in their thousands. After a few weeks in Strangford Lough feeding on Eel Grass, they disperse around Ireland. Several hundred birds frequent the Dundalk bay area and may occasionally be seen around the harbour feeding on acquatic vegitation, especially as the tide rises. Note that they are usually seen in small family groups of two parents and two to four juveniles. In March they gather once again to return to the Canada and breed."
