The UK’s Goose and Swan and Monitoring Programme assesses the number of geese which migrate here every year. The programme is jointly run by the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, Joint Nature Conservation Committee and Scottish Natural Heritage.

Data for the winter season 2017-2018 is available on the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust website: https://monitoring.wwt.org.uk/our-work/goose-swan-monitoring-programme/. As the 2018/19 winter season has yet to finish, data for this season will not be available until late summer 2019.
