Photography is still on hold. I could with the new Lockdown ruling do an outside Dog shoot with one of the owners present and social distancing but have not yet started this.
So I continue to stalk the wildlife around locally. Since the lockdown rules have been lifted a little and there is no restriction on exercise, there has been a noticeable increase in the footfall in and around the village. So not always easy, as I also usually have three dogs and two teenage boys out on walks with me!
The Goslings are growing. If I miss a day of seeing them I can see that they have grown the next day. They don’t stay as fluffy yellow balls of cuteness for long.
The parents keep them at a good distance still and are very protective. Another goose was not greeted well. No more staying at home for them, they are out and about and being Alert!
The parents are constantly looking out for Danger…
The little ones like their independence and a solo swim is often taken when Mum is not looking!
Swiming together is also fun, but Mum often leaves them to it.
Then some playtime can be had, not mad paddling to keep up!
This last image was taken on the 17th May, they are just over a week old. All five are still with us.
Thank you for reading. Keep Safe.
