  1. It’s not good to hear the geese were mobilised by dogs, but it did allow you a lovely series of images. I particularly liked the one of them all lined up on the bank, like they’re on their marks for a race across the water.

    1. It was extraordinary to see the action across the common on this hot summer’s day – cattle, ponies, waterfowl, errant children, people swimming, kayakers, punts and dog owners throwing balls for their dogs. The poor geese were harassed, and eventually moved upstream away from the crowds.
