Oscar Dewhurst – Canada Goose

Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) swimming across a misty pond. Richmond Park, London

Oscar writes: this was taken earlier in the summer in Richmond Park, when there was a thick layer of mist over the pen ponds. There hadn’t been much deer activity, so I had a look on the ponds for any birds I could photograph before the mist burnt off, and luckily the flock of Canada Geese that roosts overnight hadn’t yet left. As the sun came up over the trees it lit up this lone bird that was swimming through the calm water.

  1. A very much taken for granted bird, seen a pest by some around our urban parks, but is there a more haunting and iconic sound at dusk over water. Whilst walking the dog at twilight this winter, just to sit down in an urban park, watch their aerobatics as they land to roost and the haunting sound, means all is at peace in this mad and crazy world.
