Pink Footed Geese at Snettisham

Geese at Snettisham Norfolk

The dawn flight of up to 40,000 pink-footed geese that make their way from Iceland and Greenland to gather on the The Wash in one of the best nature spectacles in Europe..

The arrival of the Pink-footed Geese in Snettisham has come to herald the start of the Autumn and Winter season for many bird-watchers and nature lovers.

Every year this unique bird visits our shores in greater numbers with thousand blackening the winter sky as they head to their night roost.   Their numbers increase steadily throughout October, and by the end of November most of the geese will have arrived. The Pink-footed Goose is not only attracted to Norfolk for the Brancaster mussels or Cromer crabs, but for a rather less well known delicacy – the sugar beet. By February most will be returning home to their breeding ground in Spitsbergen, Iceland and Greenland.  The sight of tens of thousands of geese taking off and landing en-masse at the Snettisham reserve is one of Norfolk’s natural wonders.
