Venus Pool - Egyptian Goose

Not a lot happening at Venus Pool with the higher water levels attracting a good number of duck and as usual, even more geese! A surprise was in store however when a lone Egyptian Goose sneaked in, landing on the middle island. It snoozed for about 40 minutes, had a quick preen before emerging from the vegetation....


Wandered down to the waters edge....




Before heading downwind......


Something rather surly about these characters!


So everything else kept their heads down!


I could see what was going to happen, so got ready to catch the flight shot out (having missed the flight shot in!)




Here we go.....


Skipping the water.....




Settling into level flight in front of me!



Before climbing high and heading south east, I don't think a return is on the cards!
