I saw my first Greylag goslings being led to the safety of the sea today. Is this a sign that summer is ending....god i hope not its snowing again!!!


  1. Do me a favour Daf and tell me if the pic on my blog is a Greylag gosling. It's been hatched by a Mallard and I've no local goslings to use as reference. It looks like a Greylag.

  2. I posted about it on orkbird asking of simler ocurences or an id on the gosling but apart from a comfermation it was a gosling i seem to have hit a wall of indiferent silence here tim. I thought it would prove interesting if it was behaviour thats been seen before. It would be yet another presure on avalable habitat with their rapidly increasing numbers.
