Stand like an Egypitian (Goose)

More duck-like* than goose-like I think but they're still called Egyptian Geese. And now I know why (after a bit of reading). I admit I'd previously thoght they were called "Egyptian" Geese because they looked like the birds that appear in ancient Egyptian art. Well, yes and no, they indeed look like those birds but that's because they are. They really do come from Egypt originally, they're been over in the UK for a couple of hundred years though most of the wild population are still confined to the South East. So now we know. * Closest relative is the Shelduck, so that makes sense too. Canon EOS 40D
