Flight of the Wild Geese
The sight of strings of wild Barnacle geese flying overhead with a noisy chorus of honking will be a familiar sight to many. However, following their migration, little is known about the lives of these sociable geese. This title follows the migration of wild Barnacle geese from their over wintering grounds on the Solway Firth across northern seas to Svalbard in the Arctic Circle, and back, providing a vivid and informative account of landscape and wildlife from Scotland to Svalbard.
