We have just got back from walking in the park which was quite pleasurable apart from the umpteen tourists we saw and had to avoid. Did any of them think about going a different way or keeping their distance in their family groups? That would be a no then!
The seagulls are watching, but the geese are savvy. They guard the precious bundles and see off predators. When more babies hatch, they form creches and several adults will keep watch over multiple broods as they come together in small groups.
The lake island is full of ‘sitting’ geese. Last year, the authorities raided the nests to keep the numbers down. This year it hasn’t happened so I’m hoping to see scenes like we had in 2018.
Nature’s wonderful isn’t it.
