It's about this time of the year that their goslings are born IIRC, and they post sentries on either side of the gang that are total mentalists.
I used to have a goose in the park that used to chase me (And only me).
Well it wasn't mine, it just lived there. (Near the park, not in it LOL).
Every time I walked through the park, it ran straight at me, hissing and snapping at my legs. It NEVER bothered anybody else.
Call me a conspiracy-theorist all you like.
But it only started bothering me, after I bought a Barbour Jacket.
But after it had attacked me in my Barbour, after that it would attack me whatever I wore.
And I did have to walk through the park, to get from where I lived to the pub.
People may not believe this. But I do have back-up on this story.
