Re: Geese and winter feeding

We do the same as dorsetduckowner as well, our geese range from domestic birds to the free rangers that visit our lake in the winter and sleep on the island. They all get fed the same and do just fine.

Re: nature notes

Not the best photo, but you can just see at the top of the web the little white zig zag tension line they make from the top of the web downwards. Unique to them I believe, they also make a nest for the eggs which looks exactly like a Greek/Roman amphora. Will see if we can find one

Re: Animal Madness

Reminds me of a council worker I knew that had to go and respond to a report of noisy neighbour's, crashing about at all hours in a house in Tilbury.
