A hawaian gosling or nene I saw at Slimbridge on a visit there over the Easter holiday. This youngster was an only gosling and his mother and father kept a close eye on me when I took some photographs of him/her. This type of goose is endangered and Slimbridge have a special conservation program to ensure that this species survives.

Gorgeous image, lovely story. We're it not for the fact that I am an absolutely useless bird photographer, I would like to visit Slimbridge as you have given us so many excellent images from there.

I do hope the work with this species being carried out there is successful, Ed: I remember seeming them some decades back when Sir Peter Scott was involved in the programme.
