|Egyptian Goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus)|
The Egyptian Goose is a bird of sub-Saharan Africa in the main although there is a significant population in the Nile Valley.
They were introduced into Britain in the 17th century and there is now a small feral population of about 400 birds in Norfolk as well as some feral birds in the Netherlands.
|I came across this pair in a small area of woodland at the side of the road in Scheveningen near Den Haag.|
