Watchful Eye

Goslings are being watched by one of their parents at a pond in Frankfurt, Jan.20. They are actually Egyptian geese (Alopochen aegyptiacus) that are mainly found in Africa, but also in Britain, France, the Netherlands, Germany and even in the U.S.. Some ornithologists say they are notoriously bad-tempered. In Britain, they were officially declared a pest a couple of years ago.
