Canada Geese - Family at Hockley Angling Club
Canada Geese - Family at Hockley Angling Club
Mother Goose, Gander and six goslings. This pair(assumed)have bred at this site for the last 5 years. I'm told that this season has been the most successful to date with 6 eggs laid and 6 goslings surviving into June. This site is fenced off and the breeding success may well be due to anglers scaring off foxes and other predators while not unduly disturbing the geese. But they hissed at me when I got too close.
