Indeed it is Very Happy

I had been searching all evening for it without success. Many thanks.

Wikipedia has this to say:

Quote:
The Bar-headed Goose (Anser indicus) is a goose which breeds in Central Asia and migrates over the Himalayas to winter in the wetlands of India. It is believed to be the highest flying bird having been seen at up to 30,000 feet.


It looked quite at home near Lough Neagh.
