[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brought to England in the late 17C the Canada Goose is now widespread throughout the UK. A large stately bird but considered a pest in some areas. Notice the ring on this bird which may signify that it has migrated from it's native North America to a man made pond near Newcastle upon Tyne! Sometimes mistaken for the Barnacle Goose.

Hi Christine, Your 2Nd picture of the Canada Goose is very clear. I like the weed in the picture it helps to add some colour to the water. we have a lot of them on a lake in dorset. well done


Welcome to TN Christine!

And as a Canuck I am thrilled that you put up a shot of Branta Canadensis,
which in some parts of CANADA is known by its native name as Wawa.
Great to see the ring! Tfs, JAY

PS the folks who consider this goose a pest need to hold up a mirror... ;)
