Egyptian geese

Have you seen the Egyptian Geese at Chestnut Grove. They are a beautiful goose species (my favourite). They were introduced to the UK in the 17th Century as an ornamental goose, which escaped into the wild and now breed successfully. The main population can be found in Norfolk. 

Male and female Egyptian Geese are identical in plumage but the juveniles lack the distinct facial markings.
