Anser anser x ??? hybrid Netherlands
photographed this geese in Netherlands on a field near Amsterdam inside recreation area from Het Twiske.
tree (2 where grey and white bird) hybrids seen in that flock.
in IMG_7314small.JPG and IMG_7350small.JPG is the same bird -- A.anser with ???.
in IMG_7309small.JPG -- A.anser with B.leucopsis? (this one was outside of that flock)
in IMG_7326small.JPG -- A.anser with with a domestic one?
another hybrid was in the company of two domestic geese.
sorry for the quality but the weather was miserable.
thanks for your answers,

don´t think so, the structure and coloration of the beak here is something occurring in barnacle x greylag, and the breast is blackish , that there is a white belly patch starting at the lower breast is also something not uncommon in this hybrid (also in Barnacle x greater whitefront that seems a common belly pattern).
here is another hybrid barnacle x greylag with a similar pattern to the one in the 3rd photo.
As you see, these can be quite close to canada x greylag sometimes (And some individual birds may be very difficult and not always easily identifiable)
