Just watch them again and see what the new pattern is.  It depends where they roost but they are more likely to head for a paddock in rough weather.  Are they coming in twice a day?  Morning and afternoon?  The most predictable movement is the morning one so if that's the case set up so you are ready 30 min before dawn and get into them.  You can always set your gear up the night before the minimize the early start.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

They'll be back. Eventually.  Smiley  As Massive said,  watch them. 

It usually take a day to scout, a day to watch and a day to shoot.

The chances are some one else will push them off from where ever they are going to next.  There will most likely be other people chasing the same mob.    Its the old dilema, there one day gone the next.   

re the earlier question, they will fly at night most likely around the full moon,  but no guarentees,  cos they're Geese and they will always keep you guessing   Grin

If they stayed all night they wont be hungry, need to time them for when they are hungry, after a duration of rough weather or when the farmer inadvertently has been putting them of in the morning, or morning and night, or just night or just mornings ect
