Four furballs

Hubby and I went for a walk through the park and along the prom last night. Typically I didn’t take the camera and could have got some really good shots, without using the zoom!

Coming up alongside the lake, the greylag family were swimming towards the bank, goslings ahead of the adults. Hubby and I stopped and started to talk to them as they got out of the water and approached us. The adult male (Canada goose) stood tall and proud of his offspring, but there was no aggression or hissy fit as we’ve had when we got too close, so we just stayed still and waited to see what the little ones would do.
They came within two feet of us, inquisitive little darlings, and Mum and Dad were content to let them.

So today we took the Nikon in the hope that we’d see these babies and I could get some pictures.
The beach was almost deserted and from the clubhouse, we walked along the prom, then down into the park.
The geese were all gathered on the bank by the car park, and I got some shots.
In fact I was quite lucky as I got TWO families with this one
The greylags have four goslings, 2 are fluffy and white and the other two grey.
They are just adorable and once again I was allowed to get quite close to take my pictures.
Enjoy.

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.

  1. Omg they are so sweet! The urge to pick them up and give them a good cuddle must be overwhelming. Obviously a no-no, but so tempting ❀️

    They are starting to enter that “ugly teen phase” where the fluff sticks out between the adult feathers coming in…. still cute but I kind of like the adolescent look!
