They are Branta Canadensis Canada Geese. Found all over the UK mainly in lakes.

The geese look as if they can't make their minds up 'should we or shouldn't we take the plunge'. It's a lovely photo and near to my roots!

Many people,(even in Canada) don't like Canada geese. However, I do,and enjoyed seeing them in England when I visited family and friends!
..Nice picture,by the way,Perhaps I should have said that first. My apologies, and thanks Ron.

I walked along here with a dear friend many years ago. A lovely stretch of the canal.

It's been quiet though.

Yes, Mick, I recognised it right away. Thanks.

Think the stretch of canal farther up on the way to Top Lock is far nicer.
