Barnacle Goose

While in Oslo, Norway I encountered some barnacle geese, 
a species I don't recall seeing before. 
The barnacle goose has a white face, black head, neck and upper breast. 
The wings and back are silver-gray with black and white bars. 
The belly is white. It has a black bill, legs and feet. 
It breeds in Greenland and northern Europe and Asia, and spends winters in norther Europe, including the British Isles.
