Goosle Gosling!

More tired in large.

Eee, the Goosles have a gosling! There's only one, but Mrs. is still sitting on her nest, so she must think that her other eggs still have a chance... I'm not sure how old this gosling is (my mother first saw it on Friday), but I'd guess that it is at least half a week old, so I don't hold out much hope for more goslings emerging. I hope that Mrs. leaves the nest to help watch the gosling, because Mr. wasn't being terribly attentive, although the gosling did keep close to him.

I was away this week, and will back blip my pictures over the next few days; I had a choral week in Derbyshire (six days of rehearsals and two concerts), and am now totally knackered, so picked this picture partly because it reflects how I feel...

I've uploaded a new Goosle Gosling album to Flickr (here); I'm going back to Oxford tomorrow evening, so (alas) won't be able to follow or blip its progress regularly.
