Greylag Goose

My Saturday Bird this week is a portrait of a Greylag Goose (Anser anser).

This individual was photographed in the mid 1980s when most of the Greylag Geese in the U.K. were feral birds associating with Canada Geese and other wildfowl species. Recent population numbers for the species across Europe show a dramatic increase, possibly due to climate change affecting their migration patterns.

The bird is at “The Mere” on the edge of the town of Ellesmere in Shropshire, England in winter.
