Canada Goose – 1980s winter

Branta canadensis – GWYDD CANADA – Breeding resident

The BTO winter atlas showed that Canada Geese were present in only one 10km square during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84. 

The mid blue colour in the square represents over 27-121 birds recorded in a day. About 100 Canada Geese remained in the Boulston area of the Western Cleddau which is where they were introduced in 1955.
