Heron Stalks Canada Geese Goslings - Grasmere

Walking beside Grasmere lake we noticed people watching a spectacle being played out between a family of canada geese and a heron. The hungry heron clearly wanted a gosling for tea, but the parents were trying to keep him at bay.

Each time the heron got too close he was chased by one of the parents

but he was a persistent bird and always returned, patiently waiting for an opportunity!
