The very rare Lesser White-fronted Goose

By movingmountain
The Lesser White-fronted Goose (Anser erythropus) is a goose closely related to the larger white-fronted goose (A. albifrons). She can be recognized by an orange ring around the eyes and the bird is much smaller than the larger white-fronted goose. Nevertheless extremely difficult to be spotted because of the fact that the geese in most cases mix in groups.
The additional version is a male who was following the couple all the time. The couple has been ringed which indicates they might come from the Swedish breeding program. The 3rd goose has no ring which is rare and indicates its a real "wild" one.
