Canada Geese

I’ve been wondering whether we would get any goslings on Doctors Pond this year, the ducks have produced, the moorhens have produced…and finally we have goslings!


The dreary weather continues unabated…I popped out inbetween showers and grabbed this shot of the local Geese around Doctors Pond, then an almighty crash of thunder and flash of lightning sent me scurrying back home. I then spend the next couple of our mounting some images for our next round of the print competition at Bishops Stortford Camera Club.


You may recall our last post about the Canada Geese that frequent the Doctors Pond here in Dunmow, and I mentioned they liked to have a good go at each other. Well, here’s a good example taken earlier this year.


If you’ve ever been to Great Dunmow you’ll know that, on Doctors Pond, we don’t only have ducks, but also a flock of Canada Geese (Branta canadensis). This lot make a real racket, honking away, and they do like a good hissing fight!

This shot was taken back in the beginning of February first thing in the morning, and it was cold!
