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.
Did you know geese do the backstroke when they think no one is looking? (At a pond at Ostpark, Frankfurt, June 16)
