519 Geese

I think these are Brent Geese. They were on Forton Lake yesterday as I did my walk up to the Millennium Bridge. I heard them before I got near the bridge. They weren’t raucous like the Canadian Geese can be, it was quite a gentle quiet conversation that was going on. It appears that their nesting grounds are in Siberia (I’m guessing that they are dark bellied) as opposed to pale-bellied, who breed in Canada and Greenland. Which ever they are, what a journey they’ve had. You really can’t help but be impressed with them.

I haven’t noticed the Brent Geese before, I am more used to seeing the Canada Geese, I was surprised to find that they don’t migrate. I’m not quite sure what their pattern is, but the there are times when I see hundreds of them, particularly on the playing fields at the southern end of of HMS Sultan.

I really love seeing them fly over, they are usually heading for one of a number of feeding grounds in the area, be it the Spring Garden Lane playing fields or Leesland Park or somewhere else. They swoop overhead in there magnificent formations callingto the others in their group, it really is lovely to see and hear.

I saw a fox on my walk this morning. Yet another part of the local fauna that it is a delight to see.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
