I did post this on Hants Go Birding with no response so will try on here. On Tuesday evening I stopped at the Redbridge Flyover to the West of Southampton looking for a few 'day ticks' and saw a Canada Goose which was different. It was noticeably smaller than the other normal flavoured ones, and had a wholly dark body except for a white bib. I would say it was more Brent sized.
So is this a freak or is it actually a Lesser Canada Goose (I think they are called Taverner's or Hutchinson's or something, sorry should do a bit more research!)?
It was a nice looking bird and I am quite surprised I noticed it!
Thanks in advance for information
PS Is it a tick?!
