I’ve just got back from walking Maggie.
It’s another beautiful day but with a temperature I can cope with as there is a lovely breeze. Usual route this morning, and I was out for about half an hour.
There was a lot of activity on the lake this morning, and Nature never ceases to amaze me.
I’ve gotten use to the ducks disappearing underwater only to reappear several yards further up. Even the little ones are bobbing up and down now, which is wonderful and amusing to see as they shake off the water. True what they say, water off a duck’s back, not so much as a drop left.
This morning was the turn of the geese, and either they’re all up for a hot date tonight, or it’s just been too hot and they’re cooling off. But swimming underwater? Well, what do you know!
There were a group of about forty around the path opposite to where Maggie and I re-enter the park, and the noise was ‘refreshing’. Wings were spread and they were ducking and diving having a wonderful time. Some were taking off and then dive bombing their colleagues, or maybe siblings as it’s difficult to tell the goslings from adults at a distance now. It all seemed to be a bit of good clean fun though. Wish I’d had the camera!
