These six little balls of fluff are the first goslings of the season at Gosforth Park and they attracted a lot of interest from the other dozen or so greylags on the lake.
When I was watching the parents spent most of their time warding off the unwanted attentions of the other geese. This is the father in his threat posture.
Eventually the parents decided to move off to the reedbeds for a bit of peace and quiet.
But they were followed by a flotilla of excited geese.
The last I saw of them they were heading for the other end of the lake.
