Wow!

I was standing in the conservatory when I heard the sound of geese flying over. In Norfolk, we have huge flocks of these arrive, predominently Canada geese. My camera just couldn't do the numbers justice, especially as it was getting dark:

The sky was filled, in all directions with geese flying from south east to north west, literally hundreds upon hundreds of them. Neither of us have ever seen that many flying over in the whole time we have lived here. Arriving, departing, we don't know. Maybe they know something we don't!!!

It was quite humbling to watch them.

    At first I thought you had stolen my post, I have been thinking of doing a post on the starling murmerations here in Brighton, so amazing to watch at dusk each night.

  3. How amazing! Wonder where they were going/coming from? I remember a couple of years ago we saw a dozen buzzards, all at once, soaring above the field behind us. Never seen more than 3 or 4 before.

    1. I think the farmers around there let them eat the sugar beet remains.
