Seven little goslings…

Seven little goslings...

Cute, aren’t they? This magnificent seven live along the Grand Union Canal at Ladbroke Grove in west London, and are being beautifully looked after by mum and dad. In fact, when I passed them this evening, they were sat on the grass, all trying to wriggle under mum’s wing at once to keep warm! I couldn’t help but smile at the sight of these seven little signs that spring has finally arrived…

Luckily, this new family of Canada geese are also under the watchful eyes of the residents of the houseboats moored along this stretch of the canal. The towpath here is always busy with dog walkers, joggers and cyclists, which opens up a whole new world of possible hazards for such tiny little creatures – a point not lost on one resident, who put this sign up on the bridge:

Slow down for goslings!
