2012 goslings

 

      

Our Faorese geese have hatched out 8 goslings who are now happily wandering around the park. Hopefully they’ll fare better than last year when they also hatched out 8 but only 3 made it to maturity the rest were lost to predators, most likely blackbacks or bonxies. It’s also fair to say that of the 3 that made it to adulthood only one survived past christmas (and very tasty they were too!). The survivor has joined the flock so there ae now 3 geese protecting the young which should enhance their chances of survival
