Hi GeorgeAnn, and welcome to the forum.
Down yer in Devon, they are pretty scarce (I believe we have only one breeding pair in the county but I may be wrong), but I don't know about Somerset / North Somerset / BANES / whatever they call that bit of England now.
Did you want to add a photo to the Gallery or attach it to a post ?
Either way there are instructions on here somewhere, ask Delia if you can't find them.

Welcome to BirdForum!

It would be great to see your photo of the Egyptian goose.
