Dreadnought Geese

Canada geese seem to have a tendency to move from one place to another in single file.  Sometimes, when there are a lot of them, this can be quite an impressive sight.  When I see them moving over water like this they remind me of the British Grand Fleet sailing to the Battle of Jutland.  Earlier this year, I saw 50 or 60 of them moving like this down through the middle lake to the bottom lake in Reading University grounds.  Just this evening I saw 18 of them proceeding in single file down the Kennet, with a Greylag goose at their head.
