    There are a few pairs of Canada Geese on the pond I pass on my walk to work each day. Yesterday I saw one pair had 4 babies, today I stopped to take a photo of them. The parents were watching me very closely! The babies are quite well camouflaged.

    Boating holidays in early May on the Norfolk Broads is the place for seeing lots and lots of baby swans, geese, ducks, moorhens and coots! :)

    We walked to the pond today with a group of nursery children to see the goslings. They were on the pond having a paddle with mum and dad at the front and back. We also saw 2 baby moorhens and the resident heron.

    These goslings have grown so much and another pair have produced a little family of 5. They all hang out together at the pond most of the time. Here they all are having afternoon snack.
