No! It's Not Old Father Clackers.

In a field by St. Johns Lock between Lechlade and Buscot among a flock of Canada Geese is a Red-Breasted Goose , surprisingly easily overlooked . This bird was first brought to my attention by "The Greek God" (Bill Haynes) . Of course I don't know its history so it may be out of a private collection or just a roving non-breeder either way it is a rather attractive specimen.
I photographed the statue of Old Father Thames that is by the lock and it looks as if Clackers could have modeled for it.
The Oxon Feather.
