Greylag goose and goslings

Goslings

I couldn’t resist posting these pictures. Strictly speaking I should not include them because I saw them outside the immediate environment of Greenwood House or Charlton Down. But I had an excursion to Sculpture by the Lakes near Tincleton the other day, and these lovely young goslings caught my eye and looked so cute. There were 14 in all from two broods with all four parent birds keeping an eye on them.

One of fourteen little goslings happily nibbling away at the grass by the waterside at Sculpture by the Lakes.
