No armistice for geese

Posted on

I was out birdwatching this morning. I saw one of the biggest, and most disorderly skeins of mixed greylag and Canada geese I can ever recall in this area, flying south down the River Cam. These were just a part of it:

In total, I reckon there were maybe 400 geese in the air.

Why was that? Because a pheasant shooting party put this lot up at about 11am. There was no armistice for the pheasants or the geese that were fleeing in terror.

I was very angry, I admit.

Thanks for reading this post.
