The river has started hatching! By which I mean the waterfowl that inhabit the river have started hatching out. This morning I saw my first clutch of goslings (Canada geese), there were five, possibly six. Still rather young.

Then further down I saw my first clutch of cygnets! Not the same nest as the one I took photos off the other day, she's still sitting (I saw her adjusting her eggs this morning). This one is closer to town, and she has five beautiful little grey fluff balls following her around. Somebody was feeding them bread, they were so cute!

I will take my camera tomorrow, and bring pictures to show you all :-)

Saw my first goslings of the season down in Wroxham at the weekend - greylags (damn, but I miss them in York!) with 8 fluffy babies.
