Large grey goose. Rather bulky and overall brownish-grey with a big pinkish-orange bill and pinkish legs. In-flight shows extensively pale grey leading edge to upper wings, rather pale underwing coverts, and broad white tail tip. Compare to other grey geese, which differ in details of bill pattern and colour, head and neck pattern, and have dark underwings. Inhabits lakes, marshes, and wetlands, and even urban parks in parts of its European range.
