Noisy Nenes

DSCF2243DSCF2245DSCF2244These wonderful birds are very vocal and not in the least bit shy when they see someone they suspect will have a bag of seed with them.  They will happily eat from your hand.  Nene geese are natives of Hawaii   They are an endangered species.  The ones here are a pair of captive geese roaming free at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust centre at Martin Mere.

I did see at least one other – altogether quieter, much, much bigger and made entirely out of Lego – over 10,000 bricks of Lego!
