Red-breasted Goose – 1994

Branta ruficollisGŵydd FrongochVagrant

This attractive goose is widely kept in captivity, wandering escapes obscuring the occurrence of wild birds. One at Milford Haven on 18 January 1935 (Lockley et al. 1949) is included by Witherby et. al. (1940) in a list of presumed genuine vagrants.
