Egyptian Goose

Having returned from Boston on the Red Eye (7 hours horizontal and eyes closed but no sleep) I got a couple of hours sleep before taking the kids to karate. I decided to go for my usual run, which in fact proved a very successful way of overcoming the jet lag.
Anyhow, I was amazed to see an Egyptian Goose by the water's edge near Corney Reach. I mentioned it excitedly to some people with binoculars further along and they were disappointingly un-excited, saying that a few years ago there had been a pair breeding on Chiswick Eyot.
