Amazing! Lucky to meet these vagrant geese in Hong Kong
Two white-fronted geese, not sure it is a greater or a lesser one.

They are Greater White-fronted. As well as the slightly larger size (which is difficult to judge on the photo), they don't have a yellow eye-ring, and the white forehead does not extend as far as on Lesser White-fronted. These are probably the parents of the goose in your other thread.
