Geese Flight

If you like watching geese in flight its a great time of year approaching now when all the breeding has been completed and Greylag and Canada Geese start to flock together.

We also get the Winter visitor Geese on the shoreline and nearby farmland.

These below are just a few that suddenly appeared above me when I was shooting migrating Warblers in the Parkland.




There are also lakes and rivers locally and when I was checking out a local river during the early evening a flock of Greylag arrived and flew around a few times before disappearing in the distance.
You can just make them out in this shot below (centre right).


They first approached over a small lake, but decided against landing there.


Two of the passing flock with the disappearing low sun showing them up.



Turning back, but unfortunately not coming towards me.



Below are more shots taken during the daytime in the Parkland, but with some artistic post processing applied.

  5. A great set of flight shots Roy. The last one worked well with the blue sky and clouds.
    Unfortunately here I usually see then at first light skimming the roof tops. Too dull for decent photos and so low they are gone past in a noisy flash.

    1. Thanks John. Perhaps a trip to the South side of the Wash would be a good idea now soon.

  6. Hey Roy... Love seeing a flock of geese flying over my house, and have just about fell over things in the house just to see them as if it was the first time .

    Beautiful shots of them in flight.

  8. One of the things I love about Autumn is hearing and seeing skeins of geese flying overhead. We aren't really on a flight path here but we get them occasionally.
