Tundra Bean Goose

On 27th December 2011 I was back at Liscannor with a few friend to do a bit of birding.  Coming out of Liscannor near the pitch & put Course at Sandfield I spotted four geese on a distant hillside.  We pulled back along the road to get a better view and found them to be three Pink-footed Geese and one Tundra Bean goose.  This is the second ever record of Bean Goose for county Clare.  The first was shot on the Shannon Estuary in February 1903, over 109 years ago.  See distant photos below.
