Eagle Pond: Naughty Goosle-ling
Less sociable in large.
I've just back blipped entries for the last couple of days:
Friday: Jericho: Cerinthe
Saturday: WWT London: Plumed Whistling Duck
I went to Eagle Pond to see the Goosles, but they were being very antisocial, and just stayed on the island both times that I visited... The Goosle gosling is now huge (this was the last time I saw it): it (he?) seems larger than Mrs.
I approve of the message on this sign, although there were still anglers on Eagle Pond, so I don't really see the point. I had fun photographing the birds there, even if the Goosles weren't playing ball (*sob*).
I've uploaded a few others to Flickr (right from here).
