Faroese geese and goslings

Thought it was time I posted a pic of the geese with their goslings. This was taken a couple of weeks ago, when there were still 6 goslings. Unfortunately we are now down to 3, not entirely sure what happened to them but strongly suspect predation by crows/ravens/blackbacks. Given how aggressive the geese are towards us I’m surprised that anything got near enough to take and of the youngsters.

We have also lost one of the ducklings but that still leaves us with 15, so we’ll not want for duck meat over winter!
