big enough to be eating grass and already used to having people close by – the parents are used to people too so no hissing
two groups of 6, with one group a bit older than the other
I love how both adult and chick are pecking at the grass in this one
and for the third year the mixed couple of one Canada and one Grey Laggard Goose have a chick – the resulting birds do look different but are part of the large group of geese (of both types) who live along the river)
I might not see any cygnets yet as I saw the swan nest abandoned with 5 eggs in it but no sign of the adults – it might have got wet when the river rose after the rain.
