Starting from number six there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

Nearly out of photographs.

Chris thought I needed cheering up, so this afternoon we visited Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, near Bristol. Julia .

Every day we can see the Goslings getting bigger and changing colour and gaining confidence in what they do. They are starting to swim away leaving their parents on the bank. Over the past few days the Goslings have been trying out their wings in earnest. They really seem to be enjoying themselves moving quickly over the surface of the Lake, then diving under the water before preening themselves.

It wont be long before they try to take their first flight. That is when they will be in danger. For they will be liable to land on the other side of the electric fencing. If we are unable to guide them back to the safety behind the electric fence the Fox will have easy pickings.

The other danger for the Goslings are the over head cables as there is a chance that they will hit them on taking off and landing. I hope that as they have seen them since hatching they will realise the danger the overhead wires will be.
