Wild Goose Chase

As it turns out, even the geese have been getting into the Spring spirit of things.
It's really nice to see a small gaggle of goslings (is that the right collective noun?)
Sadly it was quite dark when I spotted them, so the pictures aren't the best.

Here's hoping for a dry bright day this weekend when I can find them or then again, maybe the goslings will turn out to be as elusive as their parents in flight!

Spring is in the Air

Ah, Spring is in the air and the canal wildlife seem to be in the spirit if things.

Lots of little baby ducklings are out on the canal - very cute.

The same walk revealed lots of other excellent wildlife and I really feel we've seen the end of winter now

The fairly dull looking thumbnail of water is actually some swallows diving around, click for a larger image to see what's going on
