The geese flap their wings as they arrive in their field.<br />
<br />
A flock of 500 free range geese take one of their final morning walks from their barn through the village of Croxton Kerrial.<br />
<br />
The geese, who have loved the recent rain and mud spend their day grazing in a field over-looked by the village church in Lincolnshire, before waddling back to their warm barn at Botterill & Sons Freerange Birds at dusk.<br />
<br />
You'll need to be quick if you want to have a gander at these feathery commuters, as the six-month-old birds will all take their last stroll through the village next week as demand for goose on the Christmas dinner table continues to rise year-on-year.<br />
<br />
The farm has a total of 1500 geese and also supplies turkeys, duck and chicken for Christmas.<br />
<br />
The geese have walked through the village for 30 years.<br />
