4 I.D's please. Location Moore (north west)

I know many on here will find these easy but I'm struggling.
1. Is it a Greylag goose-seems the same shape but its virtually all white.
2. Is it a snipe ? all the waders look similar but the Snipe seems to have the strip which these have.
3. ???? Seems an obvious goose but I can't find an all white one in the book
4. This was with the Mallards and is 'similar' shape but no curly rump and the white bib??
Any help appreciated-thanks

The geese are domesticated geese (of greylag descent). Likewise the duck is a domestic duck of mallard descent. And yes, the waders are snipe

The geeses are not wild geeses, this is sure. And in the 2nd pic are two snipes.
