Hi Again

Another poser for you

The what are the 2 duck, notice the white markings, I thought they could be Ruddy Duck but light was bad

Are the geese hybreds or a species?

Female Goldeneyes, Barry. The geese are just farmyard breeds derived from wild ancestor Greylags.

Hi Barry Ducks look like female Goldeneye and Gesse are farmyard versions of Greylag
