I buy the geese argument - we have them here and they are a huge problem in otherwise lovely municipal green spaces. I've seen successful broods of twenty goslings! The random Canada goose can create 4.5 pounds of excrement per hour and thrives on lawns. Said excrement is sticky as well as voluminous. It's a drag when you find it in that lovely spot your family has always held their annual picnic in the grass! As with all international migratory birds, they are protected here in the US. So there are no easy answers about how to control them.
Swans being highly aggressive and territorial sound like a good passive response.
But it would be a let down to see decoys in the Palace pond!

Buckingham Palace

It should also be noted that the Canadian goose is also evil. So even if their poop wasn't an issue, their attitude is good reason to want to deter them from taking up residence.

Odd never took geese for being scared if swans. Been to plenty of duck ponds to feed birds, and see geese and swans as well as ducks

But yes geese are horribly noisy and messy. Though I find them far less aggressive then some swans.

An Uber driver terror suspect arrested outside Buckingham Palace had originally headed for Windsor Castle but his SatNav sent him to a pub of the same name instead.

Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 26, was taken into custody after allegedly driving a blue Toyota Prius at a marked police car outside the Palace last Friday.

Police said the suspect reached for a 4ft-long samurai sword and yelled "Allahu Akbar" as he was tackled by officers and sprayed with CS gas.

Anyone who would write this, don't know Prince Charles very well. The man loves the grandeur and splendor of royal life. He loves the palaces, jewels and ceremony. Charles would never give up Buckingham Palace.

This is news based on an investigation from the Times, but both Clarence House and Charles's communications secretary Julian Payne has denied it.

Read about it in the After Elizabeth thread:

I think Charles will go to BP, he is a traditionalist at heart. William will go to Clarence House. Harry will move into 1A, where he will remain as his city residence.

Yes, KP is the Cambridge's official London Residence until William is King.
