As I sit and review my stats to see if I’ve hit my hoped for marker (just 17 views to go, thank you all so much), a flock of some 50 geese have just flown over my head.
They were in three groups and noisy, so perhaps the young ones were saying ‘Are we there yet’ or the leader was encouraging them all to turn right.
It was indeed a sight to behold, and reminded me so much of one of my favourite films, Fly Away Home.
Not to be outdone, Rooster and Laughing Duck got the girls together for an evening chorus of ‘Anything you can do, we can do better’, and there are about 10 on the water in front of the boat. One seems to be using her beak as a rudder, and is going round in circles!
Another wonderful sight was one of the other narrow boats coming home.
Longer than us, the owner maneuvered it with ease, reversing it into his berth without so much as a ripple, twinge, or nudge to the boat alongside it.
