They’re all still swimming down by the train station end – thankfully not too close to the Castle Lock, but still pretty far down from the nest.

The babies are really easily camouflaged against rubble, which is interesting.

One of the parents started swimming indignantly towards me again.

I know, I know, I’m just taking a picture, okay?

On the other hand, it looks like the Canadian Geese are nesting, so we’ll have goslings soon. ┬áThose are also adorable.
