Pink-footed Goose & Bean Goose.

Notes: - The Greylag Goose is a member of the Anser genus (Grey Geese). Like many other geese, they migrate south during the winter but the Greylag is always the last to leave, lagging behind the others which is probably how it got its name. There are two distinct races:- the western race extends from Iceland to eastern Russia, and the eastern race which is slightly larger and has a pinker bill. The Greylag is the largest of the grey geese and ancestor of the domestic goose.
