  3. Gadzooks! Looks like a cross between a turkey vulture and a muscovy duck--- oh yes, and a magpie. But I don't mean that as an insult. A most interesting goose, for sure!

      Slinbridge WWT is from all countries, but, I love the hides, where the real birds.

  8. A very different bird. I assume it got the magpie part of its name from its colouring...

  14. I've enjoyed looking at your images, Bob, but what a strange-looking bird it is! I would even go so far as to say it was ugly. Superb detail in your shots, however. With my very best wishes - - - Richard
