For the last few days I have been observing two families of Canada geese in Jephson Gardens.
Two goslings in this family, and aren't they cute?
This is a much larger family and they hang around the river which gives them access to both Jephson and the the Mill Gardens
huddling together for comfort
gorgeous balls of fluff
going to mum
Lots of new life around - I haven't been able to locate the parents of these two who like to rest on the side of the lake
which is very convenient if you want to go for a swim.
Meanwhile, the swans are nesting
and the sun is shining - glorious shaft of light through the tree.
