A Gaggle of Canada Geese and Goslings

Please forgive another non-hedgehog post, but I just wanted to share with you these images of Canada geese and their goslings that I saw whilst on my bike ride along the banks of the Thames river this morning.

And here's a video:

By the way, the coots have left their nest at Folly Bridge now too.


  1. Hi. Just found your Hog Blog. Brilliant photos and video of the hogs in your garden. I just have a couple, as far as I can tell, of regulars. Like you I have been trying to work out what the loud snuffling is all about. Also I have seen one hog virtually prostrate itself with head and neck on the ground as it approaches the other just as I saw in one of your videos.
    I look forward to following what your hogs get up to.

  2. Hi John, that's a great blog you have there, I've added it to the blogroll. Yes, I've seen hedgehogs make that move you describe a few times now. I'm only now learning about hedgehog behaviour mainly through observation. I've heard that hedgehog courtship can be quite rough with headbuttings etc, going on, but I'm not sure if this is what I've been observing.

    More hog videos soon when I get back home!
