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.
