Egyptian Goose Webcam
Update July 2020 - This camera has come to an end for another season. It's been a rather dramatic one with lots of surprising twists. We've seen goshawks, white-tailed sea eagles, egyptian geese and pine martens turn up on this camera. We hope you've enjoyed, and you can re-watch all our favourite moments through our video highlights. Thank you again for watching.
The Egyptian goose is a member of the duck, goose, and swan family Anatidae. It is native to Africa south of the Sahara and the Nile Valley.
This pale brown and grey goose has distinctive dark brown eye-patches and contrasting white wing patches in flight. It was introduced as an ornamental wildfowl species and has escaped into the wild, now successfully breeding in a feral state.
Egyptian Geese are early breeders, with pairs defending potential breeding sites from January onwards. Cavities in trees are favoured, but it may also nest on the ground.
