Here comes the weekend

A few to go into the weekend with.



 I seem to have a lot of pictures of geese at the moment, for some reason. These are Canada Geese goslings.


Here's another, a little bigger, with his mum, or dad.




And another proud mum.




Female Mallard, with her young.

Ok, enough of the 'cute' stuff for now.



 A Little Grebe.



 Black-headed Gull, with something for a nest, maybe?



 A Robin, with a snack.




Pied Wagtail, posing this morning.



 Canada Geese goslings. Growing up fast now.


And last one from a noisy adult.





Have a great weekend, whatever you are doing.

  24. There's something about the Canada goose and its gosling.... (2nd picture) - don't know what it is but it's definitely got the X element.

    It's as though the parent is introducing the young one to the big world.... "it's all out there for you, little one".
