Egyptian Goose

The male Egyptian goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus) enjoying the spring sunshine beside the large lake in Reading University grounds.  It's mate is thought to be on the island, sitting on eggs.  In previous years the male has been rather aggressive towards other geese while it's mate was sitting, but this year it seems much more laid back.
