i have never seen this goose and your photographs show it well
I've never seen one in the UK either........
Nice shots - I've seen these at Poyang (on the Yangtse) in China, but they were miles away !
Thanks for the comment John, this one was neither tame nor shy................
Great pics. We get large flocks around Fukushimatagata, Niigata every winter but there's no chance of getting this close.
This one was probably thinking 'hey this isn't Fukushimatagata, where is everyone anyway?'
Great, clear pictures. Shows the plumage details really well.
Thanks for the comment David
