A pair of Greylag geese on the lake.

Hi everyone,

Here's a photo I took yesterday afternoon at the Steam boat lake, there were quite a few of these geese there and you can see how large they are compared to the sea gull.

It was a lovely afternoon for a walk and I walked along a path on the edge of the forest so it was all very pleasant and great exercise. I do like ponds and lakes especially ones like this which are in the forest.

I walked around 4.5 miles in 2 hours which was a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny Spring afternoon. Being surrounded by nature is so good for us especially when the weather is good.

Jerry 😊

Hi Jerry

Those Grey Lagged Geese look very happy on the lake. Your walk sounds very pleasant indeed. Glad you enjoyed it. :-)

Glad you had a lovely walk Jerry. Sounds very peaceful. So have you been on a steam boat there or is that a daft question 🀣

LOL Ali, there's a no boats or swimming sign...which didn't seem to stop the ducks and geese mind...πŸ˜‚

What a beautiful place you live Jerry, surrounded by wildlife 😊 Have you seen any eagles or crested Tits?

Thank you Debs, I live in the Forest of Dean and think that eagles and crested tits are found more in the forests in Scotland but if I do I'll do my best to take a photo as I'd love to see both of them. 😊

Sorry Jerry - geography was never my strong point : >

It would be amazing to get a great photo of a crested tit - they are so tiny

Hi Debs and please don't apologise and I'd love to see a crested tit, I love gold crests too as they are very small and weigh less than 100g and migrate here from N Africa. 😊

Gold crests are so adorable and so tiny, I love seeing them, would love to see a fire crest - not seen one of those yet

I agree Gold crests are adorable little birds and I'd love to see a firecrest too. 😊

I will keep a look out for your pics Jerry πŸ˜‰
