Egyptian Goose Chick


The last surviving egyptian goose chick on the Reading University lakes is doing well, as you can see from this picture I took on Sunday.   Its parents were taking great care of it: chasing away  mallards and coots that came too close and quickly shepherding it out of the way of swans.  It seemed to instinctively know to go to the water's edge when danger threatened.
