have/take a ˈgander (at something)(informal) look at something: Come over here and have a gander at what I’ve got! This came from a comparison between the way a person walks when they want to look at something, often stretching their neck to get a better view, and a gander (= a male goose), which wanders about, stretching its neck to see things.
