Greylag Geese .....

As regular visitors to my blog know, lately, I have been observing the Titchmarsh Starling murmuration on a regular basis.

A precursor to the arrival of the Starlings is the movement of the large resident flocks of Greylag geese as they leave the reserve for their overnight grazing.

The noise that they make as they take off and pass overhead with their cackling and honking is quite deafening, I say pass overhead but the reality is that on many occasions they are barely ten to twenty feet above the ground as they jostle for position to form their skeins.
