Geese around Gressingham

We have struggled to identify the large flocks of geese on the stubble fields in the village throughout the summer. I thought they were greylags but all the bird guides tell me that they are only winter visitors. Can anyone enlighten me?

  • Greylag and canada geese are the two most likely species of geese to be seen in England in Summer. Which bird guides are you referring to? I haven't found anything stating they're Winter only in Lancashire, incl a quick look at RSPB website and a flick through all my books.
