Greenland White-fronted Goose Anser (albifrons) flavirostris

In Norfolk the majority of records of this scarce form are of single birds among wintering flocks of Pink-footed Geese. Unusually in the winter of 2011/12 some were found among Eurasian White-fronted Geese - these included a flock of 5, equalling the best ever count in Norfolk. Adults can be individually identified by their unique belly markings allowing careful observers to ascertain exactly how many individuals are wintering in the county among disparate flocks of Pink-feet.
