Causing few problems in their natural habitat, Canada geese become opportunistic feeders eating anything from grass to grain and cereal, creating bird problems and conflict with landowners, businesses, councils and schools. The Canada goose is notoriously difficult to deal with due to their adaptability and their unwillingness to stray from their nest area.
Introduced to the UK in the 17th century, the Canada goose has successfully bred in most parts of the country. Together with the Greylag goose, they can be found populating ponds, lakes and coastal flats in both rural and suburban areas. The Canada goose has become a major bird problem in recent years as although it’s a migratory bird, changes in climate have led to static populations increasing in number in the UK.

Problems associated with geese
In short – geese can be a real nuisance and notoriously difficult to deal with due to their adaptability and their unwillingness to stray from their nest area.
