Species with which Naturalised greylag goose (Anser anser) interacts

Only grey (anser) goose?

True, the only widespread one likely to be encountered, but escapees and/or deliberate releases crop up from many species - there was, for instance, a (real) blue phase snow goose, probably hybridising with mongrel Anser anser (var. domestica), at Abberton reservoir for some years. For some obscure reason, the enclosure alongside/around the main hide was stocked with pinioned exotic waterfowl at one time.
