Orwellian Geese

As every birder must surely agree, there are few sights and sounds more evocative than wintering geese. In Norfolk, or Scotland, on the Severn, or pretty much anywhere except Leicester. Using Orwell's vocab, all geese are equal but some are more equal than others! I know it will upset the sentimentalists, but it's high-time that a concerted national effort was made to dramatically cull the Canadas, hybrids and feral geese from our parks, lakes and reserves. Never mind Ruddy Ducks, it's these fuckers that need shooting!

I totally agree. The Feral Canada/Greylag/Heinz 57's should be culled good style

Hi Skev, totally agree with your comments and love the photos of the dodgy geese.
By the way, I have finally found out why I'm shite at directions, I was diagnosised with Dyslexia this summer, and it has a major affect when describing which direction the bird is flying from!(Well that's my excuse anyway).
Also I'm still student, but this time I'm getting paid for it!?!
Cheers,
Dave.
