Description:

I saw these geese at RSPB Snettisham this morning. A mix of pink foots and graylag i think but two things. Firstly (and apologies that the pic isn't the best) some of the birds have massive bills - almost like growths. Also, there were a handful of white birds. I'm guessing hybrid greylags? Many thanks for any comments!

Geese

Perhaps carrying food items in or perhaps lumps of earth on their bills after feeding?

Thanks Alan. I showed the pic

Thanks Alan. I showed the pic to one of the wardens at my place of work and he thought the same. I'm very glad that's what it's likely to be!!
