WHERE TO SEE PINK-FOOTED GEESE THIS WIN­TER

Country Living (UK) - - Nature -

Pink-feet tend to head in­land to feed on fields dur­ing the day and re­turn to es­tu­ar­ine coastal ar­eas at night to roost. You are most likely to see their spec­tac­u­lar flights at dusk, when they ar­rive, or at dawn, when they leave. These are par­tic­u­larly good spots to see them en masse:
