Record numbers of geese land

Forty five thousand pink-footed geese have stopped off at some wetlands in Lancashire, north west England.

They're migrating south from Iceland to find a warmer home for winter. They have travelled 500 miles.

A record number have made the pit-stop, which lets them rest and feed before carrying on.

Staff at Martin Mere Wetland Centre have been counting the geese and explain it's not an easy task.
