Honk if you're a goose
Early yesterday evening I drove up to the coast at Druridge Bay, which is the most beautiful place, with a wonderful stretch of golden sand that goes on and on and on. To the west of the beach are farmers' fields, countryside and a few villages. I went up there with my dad and we watched the light change as dusk approached, followed by the dark night sky (even at only 5:30pm). Occasionally you'll see a couple of barn owls up that way, but last night we saw enormous flocks of geese come together to make one huge flock that must have comprised several hundred geese all together. They swooped and rose in multiple Vs, honking to each other all the while, like a stadium of football fans who were heading off to the pub in celebration of a win by their team. It was like they were shouting out to each other, 'Come on boys, this way! No, wait, this one's nearer! Hang on, I've heard of this great pub just down there! Way hey! We won! We Won! We Won!' It was an amazing sound, and a awe-inspiring sight. I wish I'd had my camera with me.
