Geese are birds. Birds lay eggs. Eggs hatch. Birds are ‘hatched’, not ‘born’.

It looks amateur to have ‘seen’ and ‘saw’ in the same sentence.  I don’t like the construction anyway. ‘Hit with deep snow’ is odd. This would be one way to do it:

The weather round the country has been extremely mixed over the last few days. Goslings hatched in mild temperatures in Rotherhithe, east London, while families in Yorkshire and other counties went sledging in deep snow.
