The Swedish population of Lesser White-fronted Goose Anser erythropus – supplemented or re-introduced?

Ornis Svecia 20: 202-206.

Abstract:

We have investigated historical records of observations of Lesser White-fronted Goose Anser erythropus of the original Fennoscandian population in the area in Sweden where captive-reared goslings of the same species were released during 1981–1999. The release project has ear-lier been regarded as a re-introduction project. The data in this review include reports from many sources and we can  present  earlier  unpublished  observations  from  the area. The large number of observations of birds from the Fennoscandian population proves that the release of gos-lings in the actual area was a supplementation of a small but extant population and not a re-introduction.
