Thanks so much guys, I’d actually never heard of Rosy-billed Pochard before! It was the same size as the Barnacles Joern, unlike most other Barnacle-Canada hybrids I’ve seen, so that may be right.

Waterfowl in The Hague

Both seen today. The first is obviously an escapee but I have no idea at all what the species is! And I think the second bird among the Barnacle Geese may be a Barnacle-Canada hybrid? Thanks!
