Dark bellied Brent Geese at Yarmouth

This is my final post from birding with Eileen on the Isle of Wight and is shows the Dark bellied Brent Geese at Yarmouth.  You will see in both the stills and video at the end, they are eating eel grass.
I think it is time for a cuppa, sit back, put into slide mode and enjoy.


I hope you are relaxed now having enjoyed watching the Brent geese feeding.

Now the video can be accessed at


If there is a black space below, click it and the video will appear.

 I hope you enjoyed this post.
Thank you for visiting and especially to those who left comments.
  Tomorrow, is CHRISTMAS DAY and (hopefully) if there is not too many early risers and over the top excitment, I will post a "SPECIAL" post for you.


  1. They are simply beautiful. Happy Christmas to you and yours.

  2. Cool seeing all the Brants, I like these geese more than the common Canada Geese I see here all the time. Great photos.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours! And a very Happy and healthy New Years!

    Best wishes for a joyous Christmas.
