Snow Goose - Port Talbot Docks

My apologies. I suggested that a Snow Goose was present at Port Talbot Docks on Monday....I was being facetious.....it's a rather fat "call duck". Let's hope no one confuses it with a genuine "Snow Goose". Perish the thought I hear you say.

The GRC don't have the best of records with 'odd' geese. You only have to look at the Ruddy Shelduck that was photographed by CE the day before Colin Rimmer found a Ruddy Shelduck at RGW to realise that the files on espaced/ hybrid geese needs to be looked at?

Just to confirm. The 'Snow Goose' is just a 'call duck'. It is not a Snow Goose nor even a hybrid of one. It has a big yellow bill and goes 'honk, honk'.
