WWT London: Wet Magpie Goose

Quirkier in large.

Well, as tricky as it was not to pick an Emperor goose or a nēnē, the magpie geese were the stars today (other than the emperors and nēnēs); the four magpie geese were being less aloof than usual, and I even got pretty close to two of them when they were snoozing on a wooden viewing platform... I watched them getting pushed around by the others, pushing each other around, and washing, flapping, and preening.
I also got amusing shots of the usual suspects, and it was uplifting to spend time with the adorable emperors.

Today's others are all here (or right from Solitary nēnē)
