On a quest for inspiration I took myself out into the sunshine to wander around the lake at Worth Park where I am presently Poet in Residence.
My journey was fruitful, I was lucky enough to spy Egyptian geese parents protecting their eleven baby goslings. Gorgeous fluffy things.
On my journey I also witnessed a moorhen lunge into shrubbery after catching herself a juicy worm for dinner, a Canadian goose dive from the air into the lake to water ski and a skein of Canadian geese perform a sky show before flitting down onto the rippled sun-kissed water.
It wasn’t a wasted journey.
Have you managed to spot any water babies yet, where you live?
