Egyptian Geese (in a tree)

I knew that here in North Norfolk you can find the highest concentrations in the UK of Egyptian Geese (Alopochen aegypticus), which were introduced to Britain 300 years ago. I also knew that they are comfortable perching and even roosting in trees. Still, on the school run this morning, the sight of this pair perched high in a tree quite some distance from the nearest meaningful water is not what I expected to see. A goose in a tree. It's not right…


  1. Good grief! I'd never heard of those. They look odd to start with but to see them in a tree is making my head ache a little, especially after the second shot.

  2. Heh heh heh, certainly looks a bit strange Tim :-)
