I’ve been waiting for the sound of the Canada Geese flying overhead to herald their return to this area after they have been I know not where. So I was pleased to hear them ‘honking’ yesterday morning and found that two had landed on our pond and were looking over the island at an old nest site. I wish I knew if they were last year’s mum and dad or last year’s goslings all grown up!
Followed not long after by two more!!
Then a great deal more honking… actually very loud honking indeed…and two more flew in and then they all had a set too …the Mallards flew off and the moorhens took cover…the gang were back in charge!
Goodness knows what they are all going to do now as there definitely isn’t room on the island for more than one nest…I’ll keep you posted!
