Although these guys (canadian geese) are actually regular and they come back every year.
The first year we were here, they were only two and they successfully raised a chick (they used to go for morning walks in the field opposite, saw them most mornings on my way out to work 🙂 ), then last year three came back to the pond, I’m assuming it was mum, dad and offspring not quite yet old enough to be on his own…? And this year I think I counted five!
These two are obviously keen for some more privacy and have moved to the new pond across the drive 🙂 ❤
I also spotted ducks, who were there last year but only two of them, a pair. This year we had three to start with (two males and a female) and now another female has joined them, so two pairs! Hopefully lots of ducklings, I’ll try to take some pictures…
Oh, AND the woodpecker was spotted twice over the last couple of weeks, after a few weeks of no sighting, so he/she is definitely still around! Will also try to take another shot. It always goes for fat balls in the bird feeder so will keep putting them out through the summer, keep crows and magpies away, and hopefully he/she will bring his/her chicks!
Exciting times, I 💚 spring!! ☀ 🌱 🐥
PS: and lots of baby 🐑 every where as well, so cute! Considering getting a pet sheep 😀
