Is it a light-bellied Brent goose (Branta bernicla hrota)?
I’d reckon with light bellied also. As well as being something of a rarity, these birds endure one of the longest known avian migrations. During the summer months these birds are reported to stray all the way from Ireland, via Iceland and Greenland to their arctic Canadian breeding grounds, a total distance of 2900 miles.
You all got it right!
