The first Goose egg of the year was laid today………almost to tradition on St.Valentines Day.
Actually it has nothing to do with St.Valentines Day, its down to the the days lengthening enough that there are now 10 hours of daylight. This is the trigger for the Geese to start think about building nests and laying eggs.
I spotted one pottering around building a nest in the soft fruit bushes this afternoon, and a few hours later an egg, still warm when I took it (I took it because the Magpies break and eat them).
More to come I am sure!!
