Small Canada Goose
For the last 2 days (at least) there has been a Small Canada Goose (?Minima sp) at Llyn Coed-y-Dinas. As the photo shows, it is often with the Barnacle and slightly smaller than it with a darker chest/neck, more white on face and a stubby bill compared to the nominate species. Any experts out there to discuss the ID? I wonder where all these "escapes" come from?
