[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Greylag Goose. (Anser anser).

The Greylag Goose is distributed throughout most of Europe and across southern Siberia and central Asia as far as the Pacific. In most of its range it is migratory breeding in the north and wintering further south but British native populations are largely sedentary. There are also some feral flocks which spend all year in Britain. Winter populations increase largely due to the influx of birds from Iceland that overwinter in Britain.This one pictured at the Wetland and Wildfowl centre at Arundel.
