Hunted to near extinction, the Nene goose is the world’s rarest goose.  Breeding pairs were successfully introduced into the Wetland and Wildfowl Trust Centre at Slimbridge in the UK by Sir Peter Scott.  The photo was taken today at the WWT centre in Lancashire at Martin Mere.  They are very used to people and will happily feed from your hand.
