Topic: Greylag Goose x Canada Goose Hybrid ??

Chris,

Can the hybrid between Greylag Goose (Anser anser) and Canada Goose (Branata canadensis) be added to the UKSI and beyond please.  It is a hybrid we come across often in the North West (not sure about the rest of the UK).

Many thanks.

Steve

Re: Greylag Goose x Canada Goose Hybrid ??

Chris,

I have tried looking for this entry on the UKSI at (http://nbn-sd-dev.nhm.ac.uk/taxonbrowser.php) and can find nothing at all.

Can you tell me what name I would need to type on this page (above) to find the entry for this Hybrid Goose (Greylag x Canada Goose (Anser anser x  Branta canadensis) ??

Also, is there an entry for the MallardxMuscovy Duck cross (Anas platyrhynchos x Cairina moschata) and an entry for the Genus cross Branta x Anser ??

Many thanks for your help and any clarification you can provide.

Steve
