Painful Goose Step

The Greylag goose that has taken to the swans Island Haven is still there. From today's observations I can see what looks like a very painful compound fracture of the right  leg. 

This does not bode well and the swelling indicates possible infection too.  I will make another attempt to capture it tomorrow. It's a tough bird and is still eating and preening, how sad it was to watch it trying to lift it's broken leg to scratch it's face.
It's ability to fly makes capture nigh on impossible !
