Our smallest goose, around the same size as a mallard duck the brent goose spends the winter feeding on vegetation such as eelgrass in our estuaries and grazing in coastal fields. They arrive in the UK in large numbers in autumn and leave for the long journey back to Arctic Russia in early February. Numbers are over 100,000 birds. These birds were on the estuary of Hamble River.
