Mongoose and other stuff.
Got a visit from 3 young dwarf mongoose today.

What makes it so unusual, they are way out of their distribution area.

They stayed for a long while, irritating the ground squirrels no end.

The larger squirrels would kick sand onto the mongoose, the mongoose would ignore this and carry on with whatever they were doing.

A photo session was out of the question, they moved around all the time, never allowed a good shot.

OK, so we speak English, which says the plural of -goose can be -gooses or -geese, why can I not say -gice; as one mouse + another mouse = mice.

Oh, nevermind, we speak Inglis, the language where anything makes sense.

As I was trying to take a photo of the -gooses, six feral geese flew over me, and right into the sun's light, so much for taking photos.
There is no accurate record of these feral geese (tame Embden type geese which have gone 'wild')

These wild geese never come close to the domesticated geese.

A fair start to the new year. The year where all add up to 10, or is it 100 ?
2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 or 100; take your pick.
