Help with identification


Have a few domestic geese by the river bank and they've been joined by a wild goose that I can't identify. Picture attached. Location is Co. Antrim in Northern Ireland.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Another domestic goose I'm afraid.
Looks like the swan goose/greylag goose hybrid in this link.

Definitely not a wild species.
