Greylag Goose1

 

Greylag Goose is the only goose to regularly occur in Portugal where it is a winter visitor, though in very small numbers to the Algarve. A small gaggle spends the winter in the Cerro do Bufo section of the Castro Marim nature reserve, but numbers appear to be diminishing year on year and it may well be this will cease to be a reliable site for the species before too long. Elsewhere in the Algarve, Greylag Geese are only ever recorded occasionally.
