rose bush on the bank of the River Esk
There were some odd looking birds around on the river today, including the goose on the left in this photo
The goose on the right is a Canada goose and the one on the left is its offspring from a mating with a greylag goose. These two species seem to interbreed quite frequently, I remember once a couple of years ago seeing a family of one proud Canadian goose parent, one proud greylag goose parent and five odd looking youngsters, sadly that was on a day I didn't have my camera with me!
This odd looking duck was also hanging around
