Looks like a Domestic Graylag, probably pure, but perhaps a hybrid with Swan Goose.
I thought it did not look heavy enough to be domestic compared to the surrounding flock and doesn't have the bulge at the top of the beak for Swan Goose either

these ind. checkered with white are considered hybrids greylag x domestic greylag, provided structure is that of a wild greylag goose.
Thanks Lou. This goose is very similar in structure to the neighbouring wild Greylag
