The article I think you may be refering to is in BB, a couple of years ago.
It is a report on all the work so far undertaken by the Irish and other
wildlife services in relation to the GWFG. Well worth reading.

Hi Tom,

"As to Greenland White-fronted Geese the January count showed less than
birds present - this steady decline is a worrying trend that is just not 
improving." - Chris Wilson's Gaggle Magazine

Seeing as the North Slob is the wintering stronghold for GWFGoose, the fact 
that in 1988/89 the Wexford flock was estimated at 10,064 geese compared to 
just under 7500 today with no major population increase in any other Irish 
sites may indicate that the geese are indeed "under some threat". A loss of 
nearly 25%!!!!

I have heard that Canada Geese are out-competing GWFGeese in parts of their 
breeding range.
Alyn Walsh has written an article on GWFGeese that is published in Birding 
World or Dutch Birding, I'm not quite sure which one, but I imagine it
provide more concise answers.

See Ya,
