Passing the Battery: a small skein, only 120 geese. Some geese are resident, mainly at Aberlady Bay, and honk their way over Dunbar to feed in the fields behind. Others migrate enormous distances. During the autumn- and early-winter mornings, geese move from these roost sites to stubble fields, where they will feed upon spilt grain.
