Merry and Pippin are growing fast and just love to play. Their latest antic was to join with Tilly and William (longstanding guests) and play ‘hunt the pegs’. The geese run up with the children to the search area and then walk around with them nattering away as if giving clues. Then when the game is over they have a race down to the bottom of the garden. At bedtime you just call them in and they slowly amble into their house and then peace descends until the next morning. Then the moment you speak to them they are awake and raring to go. We have never met such gentle loving and playful birds.
