Goose Green Invasion Force?

Back in 1982 British forces were involved in the Battle of Goose Green and while I certainly wouldn't want to belittle their efforts (or those of the defending Argentine forces) I just wonder how our guys would have coped if faced with this lot?

These are, mostly, Canada Geese who have adopted Magor Pill on the Severn Estuary. Quite why they've turned up in such numbers at this time of year I'm not sure, unless migration is early this year?

Watching them massing and making their way along the shoreline reminded me of a full-blown invasion force... hence the post title. Whatever the reason for their presence, Tilly and I enjoyed watching them for a while.
