Last Friday in Regent’s Park I was watching the goose version of “helicopter parenting”.
The Egyptian Geese have a large brood, and an attitude of “Prepare for a pecking if you come near my goslings”.
Does the gosling in the next photo have enormous feet? No – I just took the photo from a bad angle, in line with a twig on the ground.
And the next gosling is saying “If anyone says my picture isn’t sharp enough, I just tell them that I’m naturally fuzzy and fluffy.“
