A local Red-breasted Goose

Ringed birds can, unfortunately, be a bit of a let-down. There's no denying that this Red-breasted Goose is a bit of a looker, but when I found it a weekend or so ago at Cross Ness, London, I knew exactly where it had come from - ring or no ring. This yellow-ringed adult has been at large for quite some time now, having been seen at Rainham earlier in the winter. Hanging around with Canada Geese into the summer months isn't a good way to endear yourself...
