we get thousand around Nairn, but not many come on the course, not during the day anyway. there are fields full of them between the airport and Nairn.. mostly Pink footed, get a small flock of Brent down on the beach over winter
A course near me was recently closed for a day as large numbers of geese were shot.
The geese weren't resident, they flew in each day for feeding and crapping purposes before flying out in the evening.
A mate of mine has well over a dozen geese in his freezer!
