Egyptian Goose

An introduced species but getting a hold in places and breeding more often.

Noisy blighters.

They can be very quarrelsome, and set up a right old din when disturbed.

Egyptian Geese in London

They breed a lot along the Thames actually and use Kew Gardens as a safe haven. They tend to breed earlier than other birds/geese, sometimes as early as February.

I believe they were originally introduced in the 17th or 18th century and have spread to The Netherlands and Germany since.
