Another sign of spring...... I mentioned a while ago that a few greylag geese seem to have adopted Saltaire as their home. Two of them have produced a family in the last few weeks. I first noticed the goslings on 18th April. At that stage they were golfball-sized balls of fluff and there were eight of them. Two weeks later, when I took this photo, and they are like little tennis balls - but only six remain. It will be interesting to see how many - if any - survive to adulthood. Mama seems to be getting a bit short-tempered!
PS: Anyone who wants more Royal Wedding photos (!) should look at the British Monarchy's own Flickr site - effectively the bride and groom's own wedding album.
