In the previous post I showed you the ducklings and goslings just days after they were born, sometime in mid-April. Of course I went back to Gentofte Lake to keep an eye on the evolution of these little fluffy balls. And also because I wanted to make sure that they recognise me in the future ;)
One month later this is what they looked like... the soft little fluffy balls turned into what looked like a sequel of Jurassic Park! ;)
Many had disappeared, probably killed as part of the circle of life, but many had grown up and looked very healthy.
I noticed something very strange though... When the adults just got their babies they remained very closed to each other as individual families of usually 6 goslings plus the parents. This time, however, something had changed. Some families remained independent, although slightly shorter in number, but others had about 10 to 15 goslings for only just two adults.
How does that work? Did they steal them from other families? Or is it like day care for geese? Please enlighten me if you know the answer.
A path goes all the way around Gentofte park...
Day care in the Lake! (How many goslings can you count?)
