The Spur-Winged Goose (Afrikaans name, Wildemakou) is a common resident at wetlands and agricultural lands.

The male has more fleshy red facial skin and wattles than the female and also gets a swollen head knob during breeding.

In the flight photos you can clearly see the spur on the wings.

They are often seen in huge flocks along with Egyptian Geese.
