A pair of Greylag Geese in flight today. Thank you for your interest.

The ancestor of most domestic geese, the greylag is the largest and bulkiest of the wild geese native to the UK and Europe. In many parts of the UK it has been re-established by releasing birds in suitable areas, but the resulting flocks (often mixed with Canada geese) found around gravel pits, lakes and reservoirs all year round in southern Britain tend to be semi-tame and uninspiring. The native birds and wintering flocks found in Scotland retain the special appeal of truly wild geese.

An excellent, well-timed in-flight capture, Mike, with lovely detail and colour. Beautifully presented with the white keystroke. Like this a lot.
