Hi Phillip, I have wondered the same thing. My guess is they are Greylag Geese probably on Kerguelen or Amsterdam Islands. These are both French administered islands. The geese may have been introduced when the islands were settled and became feral.

Any other suggestions?, Michael Ramsey.

>Right near the end of the film "Travelling Birds" (in the Albatross of the Antarctic section): is a short scene of several King Penguins walking on grass towards the beach with some out of focus what looks like geese (what, not MORE geese) flying by. It just struck me as an interesting juxtaposition (King Penguins, grass and geese) and I wonder whether someone has a good idea as to where that may be and what goose species it would be.
