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.

Haymoor Green Rd

Travel Tuesday is traveling back to southern Cheshire in the mid 1980s.

If I saw a red post box in nice light I would stop and take a few photos for one of the photo agencies I was contracted to. Red post boxes are regarded as a British cultural icon and as a result book and magazine editors are frequently looking for photos of them.

This is the post box on the junction of Wybunbury Lane and Haymoor Green Road near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
