Greylag Goose

Anser anser


I am not sure of the type of this goose, it has the ocean blue colour eyes of an Embden goose, but had a brownish head and white body, with some brown patches.


A couple of these were in a group of Embden geese at the River Ouse, which runs through Ely, Cambridgesire, UK.

Thank you Alice. This is a very popular stretch of the river for visitors so the geese are quite used to seeing people and having their photos taken.
