Wapping’s Egyptian Geese goslings continue to thrive on Shadwell Basin

By on August 24, 2017 in Egyptian Geese

All six Egyptian Geese goslings continue to thrive on and around Shadwell Basin and are now much more than just small balls of fluff.

Love Wapping sent its entire team of Wildlife Rangers along a few days ago to check on our much loved geese, lie on the ground and get some photographs.

You can see from the first two photographs how much they have grown on a diet of best Shadwell grass.
