leucistic canada goose

A local Canada Goose, part of a large flock, cleaning up the stubbles around Rainton.
Several years since ive seen a local one - 2 leucistic goslings came off Brasside many moons ago, i recall them being noted at WWWT at a later date.

Didnt notice in the field, but the digital image shows that even the bare parts, legs & feet are also paler than normal.
