There's been a bit of discussion on Neighbourly and social media about the numbers of geese here on the coast.
Have you noticed an increase in their numbers, or seen gaggles in new places? Are you concerned by the geese or do you enjoy seeing them?
We'd love to hear your thoughts.

Anyone else had or having ongoing problems with Vodafone TV?
As part of the national response to COVID-19 alert level 4 Metlink will make all rail and bus services free until June.

The council has just issued a release which reads in full:
From tonight, the Kāpiti Coast District Council will be locking vehicle access gates at those parks that have them, and the gates into cemeteries across the district to help reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading in the community.
Kapiti Coast District Mayor K Gurunathan says Alert Level 4 means limiting travel within our district.
“The advice from the Ministry of Health and other Government agencies is clear. The best way to reduce the risk of exposure is to stay at home. Travelling further afield increases the risk of community transmission, and the length of time we may remain at Alert Level 4.
“While the gates to our parks and cemeteries will be locked to vehicle access people can still use them to get out for a walk, bike or run. But, we do ask that people keep their movements local and close to home and adhere to the 2 metre physical distancing rule,” says the mayor.
The council will also be locking access to the ten Council-owned tennis courts in the district.
“Playgrounds, water fountains, skate parks, basketball courts, tennis courts and shared recreation spaces pose a risk of Covid-19 spreading and people shouldn’t be congregating in these areas in close proximity.
We all have a role to play to make sure we have the best chance of stopping the virus and saving lives and we’re asking our community to show a little patience and kindness and to respect the rules.”
