Sixties? I think those other things were birds. Possibly pink footed?

Think the geese are Greylag. And the lesser spotted BT man is rare!

Your ability to work magic with engineers and delivery drivers never fails to amaze me.

I couldn't decide whether the geese were greylag geese or pink footed either, despite consulting 4 bird books. I'm glad that it's equally perplexing to readers. Actually, at first I thought they were 'grey geese' but that turned out to be the title of the page. It's definitely correct though...

DG - I've given up. My previous successes no longer work. I honestly don't have the patience needed any more. Times change and everyone knows all the relevant legislation to quote these days. I just end up thinking, and sometimes even saying, "Oh for fuck's sake!" Mr BW, on the other hand, is an absolute master of the art these days. I think it took him around 20 phone calls to get that OR engineer here. But, at least he has them ringing him now.

Possibly Greylag as legs look more orange in colour. Excellent work getting BT outreach out.

If there's just a pair they could be escaped domesticated geese......I think a lot of those are descended from crossbred Greylags anyway (including the poor old Toulouse Geese).

I'll go with domesticated and escaped, even though there are two and sometimes 3. That will explain why they don't match any of the birdbooks. Thanks all!
