Drove past Beacons Reservoir today and probably the 2 geese seen on Sunday 9th Dec are I believe hybrids showing the size and large orange beak of a greylag but with the white facial patches of white fronted.[Off-line, others have confirmed these geese arrived back in the summer - whether by flight or in the back of a vehicle is questionable. Probable Swan Goose x Greylag, farmyard-type (not wild). VAK]
