    Default help needed please

    can anyone help identify these birds please? the dark one was seen at the side of the river in Chesterfield and was about as big as a goose/turkey? sorry did not get a face view. The other was with all the ducks at a local lake and was very pretty, bigger than the ducks but not as big as the geese.
    Any help appreciated - very new to this!!

    These are both escaped or feral geese: the one on the left is a Bar-headed Goose, the other a Red-breasted Goose. The latter does occur wild in this country rarely, but such an occurence is unlikely to be by the river in Chestterfield, but by the coast with a flock of wild geese.
