The Wetlands Reports~part 2

Some more shots from our walk around the wetlands. It’s a lovely place to go, they do a lot of conservation of endangered species, and have a good cafe too!

As we walked through the woodlands, a herd of geese came charging at us, the parents being very protective and the babies wanting seeds.

Cal was a little spooked as they came charging towards us but we got the seed out and that calmed everything down.
