The Greater White-fronted Goose is not a bird which is common to this country. It may visit us during their spring- and autumn
trips to and from warmer areas. Yet there are about 400.000 thousand birds from North-Eastern Europe and Western Siberia
that every year goes down to Germany, Netherlands and France to spend the cold days there. They are, however, keeping
a more easternly route, so that a few can be observed in Sweden, and then only occasionally here in Norway.

Latest news is that there now are a few minor flocks on the South-western part of Norway, near Stavanger during the winter.
The Greater White-fronted Goose breeds near water, it is, of course, a goose. And as other birds breeding on shore,
they wish to have a good view to the land around their nests.
