Matilda has been around by the harbour for a few years now, mixing with the ducks and geese. She sees no reason to go elsewhere. She has found happiness by the water's edge. No, not the lady with the bag; the barnacle goose. Obviously flying back and forth to Spitzbergen every year was too much of a drag when there's a free meal to be had every day. She's become a  bit of a favourite with the local fishermen who also feed her.
