PS. Yesterday, a flock of Cackling Geese landed at the north side of the river near the north east end of the trestle. There were a couple Aleutian forms in there, but the rest did not appear to have a white ring at the bases of their necks

Also yesterday, I counted over 230 Greater White-fronted Geese flying around, landing and bathing in the estuary. This morning, I counted only six.
