Canada geese at Sheffield Park

A flock of Canada geese noisily enjoying the autumn morning sunshine at Sheffield Park garden in Sussex. We haven't seen geese here before, at least not such a large flock, and whilst they look attractive on the lakes laid out by Capability Brown, they're also displacing the elegant swans and those accomplished scavengers, the local mallard ducks. The fragrant aromas from the woodlands surrounding the lakes indicating a cool night with a bit of dew are an indication of autumn just as much as the trees' gently changing colours.
