Abyssinian Blue-Winged Goose.

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

At Ninesprings Country Park, Yeovil I saw this one very pretty bird. It is larger than the ducks that we were feeding and I was told by a lady there that is was an Abyssinian goose that had escaped from somewhere. On looking it up later its full name is Abyssinian blue-winged goose.

Fox, you have stolen the goose. give back you! Otherwise, the hunters will catch you, with the shooting rifle. His big, long rifle shoot the shot, you that make the red ink stains and then you're dead. Dear little Vixen, let you guess was not only a thief; take, need not goose with the mouse do. Like

Thank you for your splendid verse Klaus. I hope the fox keeps away from this one! All the best, Rosa.

I was told they were trying to catch her. She was very friendly, so I don't think they tried hard enough! Just hope the fox doesn't get her :(

Greetings and best wishes dear friend from Greece-Piraeus.

It is beautiful. I hope it will survive. Maybe he will mate, and there will be a totally new bird specie in England!
