I have been told by a neighbour today that every morning at about 6.30 a skein of geese flies north over Bare.

I assume these will be greylags, though Canada is possible.

She asks where they will have roosted and where they are feeding. For the latter I suggested the salt marshes around the Bay, but I don't have an answer for the roost. They are flying roughly south to north, so where is there south of Bare where there is a goose roost, please? Aldcliffe?

There has been quite a bit of coastal movement of Canada Geese over the last few weeks but nothing regular and habitual (see esp Fleetwood bird obs site It all depends what she means by flying north as it could just mean Greylag commuting between the Lune and Carnforth Marsh

Some of the greylags roost on the bowland hilltops.
