April 2nd – Since it’s spring, I note that the aggressively begging Canada geese are back on the canal near Clayhanger Bridge. Although they’d both clearly been grazing the freshly mown grass on the towpath, they were both hungry and refused to let me pass until I gave them a treat.
Curiously, this seems to be their permanent state, no matter how much food they have…
Fortunately, I’ve been anticipating their reappearance and had some seed in my pocket ready for these shameless muggers.
I’m glad to see some traditions holding steady.
