Duck, duck… Well actually it’s a goose…

You are going to think I've gone all goosy loosy what with two goose posts back to back...but when you see these pictures you'll forgive me. :o) A couple of weekends ago we went for a day trip to visit DD1 in Nottingham and spent a glorious morning at the Attenborough Nature Centre. It was only a short distance away from the university but provided a wonderful venue to catch up with DD1 and have a picnic. Being a nature reserve there were an abundance of birds, but the one that caught my attention were these peculiar Egyptian Geese.

Upon closer inspection I realized that with them was a baby and lucky me I got close enough for a couple of cute pictures...Enjoy!

Isn’t that a bird with attitude!  Check out his toe on the rock!

And those little legs….ooooh adorable!

Until next time...♥

SOOO adorable! Amazing how the baby's colouring is so camouflaging!

Wonderful pictures as usual. We have just had a gosling and two ducklings hatch, but not as spectacular as the Egyptian geese.

Actually, just to confuse matters, Egyptian Geese are ducks, not geese - A type of Shelduck to be axact...
