Had a day out orrrr ?
« on: February 01, 2018, 06:06:51 PM »
Late arrivals ?
I’m talking about ducks geese or swans flying over our house at approx 4 o’clock just before darkness falls .
Not sure of the brand of birds ,but , I suspect geese,very vocal geese
They’ve flown over three times now ,same time and same quantity,,,
Not as many in quantity this time.  Only in the hundreds,might be a bit late for them to be arriving after migrating ,,I’d like to think that they’ve been for a fun day out and to stretch their wings :-[

The bossy geese at the front gee the slow couches up barking loud quacks at them and saying “hurry up let’s get home and settled before daylight goes”
A few back chat and give as good as they get but on the whole the naughty birds tow the line ,just like petulant children  :)
 They appear to use the same flight path when returning to the wetland and wild life reserve I’m assuming they started off from ,that would be Marton Mere.
 They didn’t fly over last night ,,,I couldn’t really blame them for not having a day out yesterday ,as the weather was horrendous,high winds ! Snow ! Sleet ! Hailstone and rain !,
Sensible birds ,they must have heard the weather forecast and de died to stay put ?

I bet that the air traffic controllers at John Lennon airport throw a wobbly when that lot appear on their radar! ;D
