Am I missing something?

I can only see Canada Geese. Is there meant to be a Barnacle Goose in these shots?

sorry about that I had a senior moment, I have Barnacle Geese (Branta leucopsis)on the mind after reading about them in my RSPB bird book, I'm normally pretty accurate identifying birds :-)

I wouldn't worry

I saw your image and could swear it said Canada Goose and agreed accordingly, now that was a real senior moment.
