Goose flies upside-down

Goose flies upside-down: "This is the moment a goose was caught performing an extraordinary upside-down contortion as it battled to land in heavy winds.

The bird was captured by a wildlife photographer flying with its neck twisted 180 degrees and its body seemingly facing the wrong way.

The manoeuvre may look painful but it is a known tried and tested way of braking, called whiffling."
