Greylag Geese

The Greylag goose is a pretty common goose and I must say a little uninspiring when you walk past yet another one on your walks. However, at Martin Mere I thought I'd try and make them a little more appealing by taking some more interesting pictures. Flight shots are always good, so that's what I tried to. I had varying success, but it made me look at this goose in a different light (so to speak).

  1. Excellent shots of them landing and taking off. I know they are common but I much prefer them to the Canada geese.

  7. Great shots - a greylag here would be as rare as a whiskered tern with you - maybe even rarer!

  8. I think they're beautiful....nothing at all like the geese we see here in America.

    I know and understand what you meant tho, about seeing a very common bird and tend to ignore them as you're walking along....thing is, there is always something special about even the commonly seen birds. I loved how you captured them in a 'different light'.

    Thank you for sharing your link at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend!!!
