Abstract
Field choice of staging and wintering geese were regularly
noted during the International Goose Counts in south-west
Scania, South Sweden, since the start in 1977/78. Marked
changes in the selection of field types was noted during the
autumn counts. When the counts started sugar beet fields
were important for Anser fabalis during late autumn,
whereas Anser albifrons, Branta canadensis and the few
staging Branta leucopsis mainly used autumn-sown cereals
and grassland, and the few observed Anser anser fed on
stubbles. During the study period all species changed to
feed on sugar beet remains during autumn, and this was the
preferred food for all species in recent years; B. canadensis

and A. anser changed around 1988–1990, whereas the two
smaller species A. albifronsand B. leucopsis changed later.
In winter, most remaining geese used (Less)
