Save a few handfuls, bundle them up in a piece of wire netting and in February/March tie it to a fence - the nesting birds will be very grateful for an easily accessible supply of dried moss and grass

What bird of prey would attack a skein of geese?

Could it have possibly been a heron being mobbed by the geese?  Herons will take baby goslings so geese will always see them as their enemies, whether they have small goslings with them or not.

Rooks will mob a heron too.

Hosta - Ma has always found that acidic fruits, particularly strawberries and tomatoes, make her arthritis much worse.  Your OH will have been eating lots of tomatoes lately.  Suggest that he cuts them out of his diet and see if it helps

Pdoc, a very large heron landed on the roof of a house 200 metres away from here yesterday morning, just as I drove past.

Topbird, the car's getting just a little bit annoying now - the garage's diagnostic thingy isn't pinpointing the problem so today I have to take the car to the main dealer for their computer to diagnose the problem - I may be grounded until next week ... duh!  Thank the heavens for my bus pass

Autumn Raspberries

You've started with just the one, but the nature of raspberries, and autumn raspberries in particular, is to spread and spread - that's what the offshoots are doing - you'll have twice as many canes and twice as many raspberries by this time next year
