I’m currently working in Barham Park , Wembley and I have seen these two birds in the park all day. They’re beautiful and I’ve never seen them before. Can somebody tell me what they are please or advise me where I can find out what they are?
Many thanks
Helen

Hi Helen and a warm welcome from me too.

We don't get Egyptian Geese in Scotland (yet). They all come from escaped wildfowl collections I believe. Their stronghold is in Norfolk really and is the only place I've seen them. They certainly weren't in Wembley when I lived at Greenford in the 1960's.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about.

A pair of those lives at my local park. They aren't native to most places, but I don't believe they're considered an invasive species, only introduced. Yours probably escaped from someone's collection, or were dumped. If not, they're undoubtedly descended from birds that did.
