Welcome to week 12 of our one year pond study.  For the rest of the posts in this series please see here.

I took the children up to the pond one evening and it was so quiet and peaceful apart from the geese who stole away the show with their chatting and antics.  Here is the story of our pond this week, captured in the peace of the sun setting:

A pair of geese honking constantly at each other whilst swimming leisurely around the pond

One spotted us and immediately came over to say hello

And proceeded to put on a magnificent show for us

Flapping...
Flapping…
Preening...
Preening…
And off again
And off again
Into the sun set
Into the sun set

Seconds later, in the midst of some very noisy honking, they flew up to a nearby tree to roost.

We’ll definitely be going again at night-time, maybe even a little later.  Everything was so harmonious and at peace.  It was very relaxing.
