Wintering Light

By  Susan Eyre 2023

Migratory pink footed geese filmed at RSPB Snettisham on the North Norfolk coast. The geese over winter on the mudflats here and leave their roost at dawn in family groups to fly to the sugar beet fields to feed. The noise they make is incredible, a constant chattering, building to a crescendo of honking calls as they rise from the water and swarm across the sky in their hundreds. They come in waves but look like particles. This work is part of a larger body of work looking at extra sensory abilities of non-humans, such as magnetoreception in birds. Birds have the ability to ‘see’ Earth's magnetic field through a special protein in the retina of their eyes and use this to aid navigation.
