BARNACLE GOSLING'S TERRIFYING CLIFF TUMBLE IN GREENLAND
A barnacle gosling plummeting more than 120m (400ft) to follow its parents has been recorded by BBC filmmakers.
The chick’s death-defying tumble is a rite of passage among the birds that nest high up the cliffs in eastern Greenland.
In order to reach the grassy feeding grounds below, the geese call to encourage their chicks to take an alarming leap down sheer rocks.
