Barnacle geese breed mainly on the Arctic islands of the North Atlantic, while the nearest wintering areas also lie along the northern coasts of Europe: the Netherlands and the Baltic Sea (Estonia, Finland, Denmark and Sweden). The first idea was, it is probably wounded by poachers. I remember studying the map of countries participating in the i nternational mid-winter w aterbird c ensus, where the USA wasn’t marked.
