Hybrid or?

Looks a bit odd for a 'typical' Greylag, possibly a bit of Farmyard Goose or other Anser anser form in there. Or possible a hybrid with another goose species.

Hybrid

I think this is a hybrid between the Canada Goose and the Greylag. I have seen these in other collections and the features are very variable.
