Leucistic Greylag

I've seen this bird a couple of times before, flying around in the company of Greylag and assumed, wrongly, that it was a farm job,or some hideous cross.  Today it actually landed and immediately regretted the decision.  It must have owed the resident pair of Mute Swan on the Alex money or something,as they hounded constantly while I was there.  Perhaps it was a ploy by the other geese to get the over zealous Mutes of their backs.  If it was it worked as they received as much attention as the ducks. Doesn't say much for the intelligence of swans though.

Nice blue eyes...
