This is an Egyptian goose. I took the picture, which is not great, by the Thames River. I had no idea what it was at the time, hence the picture. I thought it was a very strange goose in comparison to the other, more normal specimens of the species that we see on the Thames. Egyptian geese look very much like velociraptors, or some kind of predatory dinosaurs anyway. And according to the raptors' description in Wikipedia, they are about the same size and also have features, so they share more than one traits with them. I blogged last year about the opinion of my niece on geese, that they look nasty and creepy. I am starting to see her point. This goose truly is a dinogoose, at least in look.
