Falling in Love with Brent Geese?!

You know when you just really like something but you don't know why... well thats what it's like when I think about Brent Geese. Although I have only encountered them on two occasions, I have already fallen in love with them, and I have no idea why?!! Soon these little birds will be leaving our shores for their breeding grounds in Russia and Canada.
Here are some shots I took of them on my latest visit to Farlington Marshes in Pompey...





You have to admit, they are a very attractive species of goose
