One foggy morning recently, on a cycle passing through Ardfinnan village in Tipperary, we came across a gaggle of geese on the main road, beside the primary school.

I thought it was a flock of geese but as wikipedia explains “A gaggle is a term of venery for a flock of geese that is not in flight; in flight, the group can be called a skein. A gaggle is greater than or equal to five geese.
