Leucistic Goose

By Andysnapper

An unusual bird today in the form of a leucistic goose. This means it has less pigment in the feathers so appears white or grey but is not the same as an albino.
This was with a group of Canada geese but there has been a suggestion from elsewhere that it is actually a Greylag, not sure myself so I will await the experts.

He may be Loostistick, but you caught him in a loosely graceful moment. Top notch! TG
