Families and their Offsprings atTattenhall Marina

------- of the wild kind that is!
I snapped this Canada Goose family with tiny, tiny goslings on our way into the marina
this is the resident family of Mallards with 6 chicks - see below ..mum/chicks a few weeks later ...
... the cheeky mare visits me on most days and knocks on the window if I'm trying to ignore it!

she brings her family with her and they thrash about under the jetty for food, they're growing up now and I don't think it'll be long before they're independant of her
the Canada Goslings are growing and can be seen in the marina most days
the family has taken over the spot used by the Mallards near the top of the page
they're packed so tightly you can hardly make out the individual cygnets!
and are always in with the main chance!
and then there's always the new kids on the block!
