- n. Plural form of greylag.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
These are greylags, with a stray white goose among them - I haven't figured out if it's some sort of albino or if it's a different species looking for company.
Tan Dun had groups of woodwind players perched around the high balconies of the Albert Hall, making wonderful bird calls, squawking and twittering on their mouthpieces - I'm surprised that the resident greylags across the road in Hyde Park didn't scatter off in a panic.
Or maybe it's some kind of Irish goose he means, and not greylags at all. "
