High Flying Gosling Rescue

Walton – 18th March 2019

Every year these Egyptian geese nest high in this tree in Walton. Every year the goslings take a leap of faith and land in the bushes below. This year one gosling decided the big hole to climb out was too big so tried to squeeze out of a hole just to small for it. A rescue team was dispatched and were trying to work out how they were going to get up the tree when thankfully the youngster managed to free itself. Sally picked it up and returned it to the family who then headed off for the river.
