Gone home

It’s nearly 8pm and we have had another enjoyable walk round the park this evening.
It is so restful when the visitors have gone home and we can amble without having to get out of people’s way.
Talking to a resident walking her dog, she was saying that she has never known the town so busy, nor the visitors so ignorant. She lives closer to the High Street than we do, though has a friend who has a static holiday caravan about a mile away who has also commented on the status and nature of visitors.
It was lovely tonight. No need for coats, just a cardy and I took the camera this time.

We are still concerned as to where all the ducklings have gone. There were so many not that long ago, and even the brood we saw the other day seem to have vanished.
Tonight we saw just one duckling, not very old and hopefully this one will thrive under the watchful care of Mum and Dad.

Coming out of the park, there were several geese along the pavement.

It was good to see one of the greylags back in the group, and this one has paired up with a Canada goose more or less since we’ve been here.

There was just one gosling in this group, which may well have been the single chick I caught with the phone camera this morning. He’d obviously had a hard day.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The gosling has a full crop and has eaten well! Hope you can watch it get big and perhaps become another one in the flock! Too bad about the ducklings. We had a pair of ducks make a nest in the neighbor’s yard behind their bushes. They managed to hatch a near dozen eggs but after a couple days they were all gone and all the neighbors had fluff in our yards… We continue to trap the feral cats but they are getting wise to the traps. 😦
