A Photographers & Visitors Guide & Timeless Stories

Extremely Rare

April 1-2

Thanks to a friendly park keeper at St James Park, I was able to photograph twin Graylag Geese.   Born from one egg, that would otherwise have been a double yolk, they rarely survive and these two have another special feature.  Ethologist Konrad Lorenz did his first major studies into the behavioural phenomenon of imprinting using Graylag Geese and, according to the park keeper, these two have imprinted on one another and are inseparable.

They are so rare that you are unlikely to see anything like this until next April 1st.   Yes, I am disgraceful and ingenious abuse is welcome and probably deserved.   Here’s wishing you all a fun day. 🙂
