The other afternoon we were walking through the park, and I noticed an unusually marked goose. I took some pictures with my phone, but couldn’t see the screen due to the sun (I find this a lot), so I pointed and took a variety of shots hoping for the best but not one came out.
Yesterday I had my Nikon camera for the carnival and managed to get some.
He/she’s quite a beauty, and we think a cross between a greylag (orange beak here) and Canada goose as there are two greylags in the local flock which have paired up with Canada geese partners.
Last year we saw this one and thought it was a hybrid.,
However, it was definitely not the one I saw yesterday as you will see:
