Geese at Sunset

Sunset over the Holkham estate
The walled garden at Holkham is only a mile or so from the North Sea where the Pink Foot Geese arrive in the winter to feed on the sugar beet tops left by the farms and roost on the marshes nearby. Early morning and at dusk is when the geese are to be seen (and heard!) at their best, flying over the garden in their arrow like skein formations Each bird slip streams behind the other with their wings at a different angle to catch the 'lift' of the bird in front.
