Thread: Geese

    Geese

    Whilst I put the dogs out last night I heard my first sounds of flighting geese high overhead. Yes, Autumn is well and truly here now what with migrating geese and the roaring stags both heralding a time for plenty of sport with rod, rifle and gun.

    Saw a very large "V" of them heading toward Strathbeg on Sunday 8th Sept. Got to be the earliest I've seen them.

    i think the other Gent's are talking about migratory Geese eg Pinkfooted Geese and to be honest im not aware of these in Anglesey but good luck getting under what i would think are Feral Grey-Lag and Canada. A few Pink's have been around in Lincolnshire and Norfolk since the 8th Sept

    The Pinkies are due here on or about the 15th and weve not seen any yet....mild winter on the way perhaps?

    .....I'm working from home today (just got SD on in the background, honest....), and I've literally just glanced out of the office window on the top floor to see a skein of 40 or so wafting through the sky.

    I'm fortunate to live in apart of the world where we usually get lots of geese, and I do think that there is something quite special about being able to look up and see wave after wave of them flying overhead, honking as they go, especially later in the day and towards the evening.

    wonderful sight and sound.
