Watching The Geese

Greylag goose Anser anser

I think this goose was actually watching me! It was a beautiful start to the day again down by the lake. An easier day beckoned after walking up and down Walla Crag the day before, so what better way to spend but down by the shimmering waters of Derwentwater.

The Greylag geese were certainly enjoying themselves and cooling down.


This was beautiful stretch of shoreline, looking down the length of the lake, the humpy Catbells to the side.


Along with the geese folk were out on the water, all having some fun in the morning sun.

  1. Love the photos. We have a park in our city where the geese are protected. As you can imagine, there are a lot of them. They even have the right of way if they decide to walk down the middle of the streets surrounding the park.
    I published a post about them here, if you’re interested.
