Spring is in the Air

All of the waterfowl near to where we live have been busy breeding. Here are a few photos, all taken within half a mile of our flat, in inner London. Thumbnails behind the cut tags, click on the thumbnail for a larger picture.



A nesting Canada goose, a couple of turtles and a pair of great crested grebes with some grebelings riding on their mother's back



A pair of Canada geese guarding their goslings



A coot with three cootlings, continuing their master-plan for world domination (we have at least five sets of breeding coots nearby, and we expect to be knee-deep in them in a couple of years) (This one is actually quite a good photo)



Boris & Petronella's eggs have finally hatched, and there are five cygnets
