Something that doesn't happen too often. Not one, but two incursions.
Keeps everyone alert!

I didn't hear any "incursion" where was it?

Well not an FAA or JAA defined runway incursion anyway ???

Incursions are not limited to runways only. An entry into restricted airspace is also known as an incursion, as defined by AOPA, NORAD, ATC, Homeland Security, etc.
So I suppose a flock of geese flying through a final approach path to an airport runway might be realistically defined as an 'incursion', it being a hazard to navigation in that regard.
