Barnacle Goose – 1894

Bernicla leucopsis

A winter visitor, not so numerous as the Brent Goose.

Has been shot by Sir Hugh Owen, on Goodwick sands, where it generally arrives about the first of October, and is often met with in company with the flocks of Brent Geese. It has also occurred at Orielton, near Milford Haven, as we are informed by Col. Saurin. A freshly shot specimen was washed ashore near St. David’s, at the beginning of December, 1893, as we learn from Mr. Mortimer Propert.
