Egyptian Goose Family

Last Friday in Regent’s Park I was watching the goose version of “helicopter parenting”.

Egyptian Geese family from a distance

The Egyptian Geese have a large brood, and an attitude of “Prepare for a pecking if you come near my goslings”.

Five 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.

Single gosling

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.

      I wish I’d seen them a week earlier, when they would have been even smaller and cuter.

      I agree. Movie stars can’t beat these handfuls of fluffiness.
