A Visit To Melbourne, Derbyshire 4/7

There is a beautiful lake next to Melbourne Hall and although spring was near to turning into summer there was still quite a lot of wildfowl to be seen. These two, which I think are Greylag Geese, came and sat quite happily alongside us by the side of the lake for quite a while.

Quite elegant companions, aren't they, Brian.
Brian Walbey: And not at all worried about us sitting there.

Lovely aren't they, I expect they associate people with food
Brian Walbey: Yes they are nice, but we don't feed ducks bread, apparently one shouldn't even consider it.

Not looking to be fed, then?
Brian Walbey: It didn't appear so Lisl, although I understand one shouldn't feed bread to ducks.
I have not been here Brian, but I have been to Melbourne in Australia.
Brian Walbey: Then you should try the smaller version up my way Chad.
Wonderful portrait of these two friends Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
what a sweet duo
Brian Walbey: Lovely aren't they.
They are polite I would say as they are hoping for a handout.
Brian Walbey: I understand one shouldn't feed bread to ducks, as a lot of people do, they didn't seem bothered about food at the time.

They are beauties. I hope you gave that a titbit or two?
Brian Walbey: They were not at all phased by au Alan, I understand one shouldn't feed bread to ducks.
Great shot, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tom.
