Residents of Bocking have helped wandering geese and goslings to safety.

The two geese and their seven goslings, were walking along Church Street yesterday, when they were spotted by a passerby.

Residents gathered to help herd the geese to safety but the two adult geese were protective.

SJ Claydon said: “The parents hissed and used their wings to protect their young, we had to keep reminding them we were there to help!”

The geese and their young did not go back to the water near Fennes, but the residents did manage to herd them into a field away from the road.

Ah Bhudeeka, underneath all that hot and angry huffing and puffing exterior you are just a mellow gentle warm heated big softie after all aren’t you.

I knew it was just an act you were putting on all along. (Playing hard to get I expect).

I assume that your contemporary feelings towards the little fluffy ducky things extend equally to little cuddly puppies and delightful furry little kittens as well.

Your kind offer (Published in the Clacton & Frinton Gazette on 30th August last year) to personally neuter any cat anyone cared to bring to you was really just a ruse to get us all going wasn’t Sweetheart?

Mind you, you’ve gone and truly buggered up my plans for our first date. I had aspirations on whisking you off on secret trip to Longleat and letting you loose in the Lions’ Enclosure with my trusty old miniature Swiss Army Knife. I really thought that would have been an absolute treat for you.

Ah well – back to the drawing board I suppose. Perhaps I’d better write to Aunty /@|_|@\'s Problem Page to see if I can elicit any guidance from that direction.

Oh how it is to be In Spring when a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
