Hi all,

Is this just a Canada hybrid? It was significantly larger, with orange/pink beak with a white stripe above. The cheek patches were also more pronounced and slightly pinkish.

Yes, Canada x Greylag hybrid. There is some size variation , some can be rather large, often when the greylag part is a domestic goose, but not only then.
