I’ll let the pictures give you an idea of what’s going on between Pix Farm and our mooring ...
They look so serene
… but can be murderous too!
Whilst we had moved to get water the chap in the boat moored in front of us told us that the cob had attacked one of the Canada geese families and had held one of the parent birds under the water but that he’d managed to escape, thank goodness!
Later we saw this lone gosling frantically swimming up and down tweeting for his family. Unfortunately the swan found him and killed him. Just looking at the picture makes me want to weep.
Early morning ablutions!
There’s usually 4 horses in the field, 3 of which are stabled at night and each morning we’ve seen this one standing by the gate waiting for his/her mates to come out to play. That’s the bird with the broken wing in the foreground, he spends most of his time on the bank just there.
