Is this a record?

Canada geese are well known for being successful breeders and good parents, but I've never seen so many goslings in one clutch as we did at Kensal Green recently. I counted 23!

This stretch of canal seems to have more than its fair share of unexpected creatures. I've mentioned before the terrapins which live nearby, and this time I got a good shot of one of the wild green parakeets which seem abundant locally. Just the thing to have sat on your shoulder when you're at the tiller.
