Migrating geese at Climping Beach, West Sussex

Migrating geese at Climping Beach, West Sussex

For the third day of my 5-Day Photo Challenge I’ve chosen this picture of migrating geese (might be Canada geese) at Climping Beach in West Sussex not far from our home.

I’ve chosen this picture because I’ve always been fascinated with bird migration in general, as these amazing creatures travel thousands of miles every year, crossing entire countries, continents and oceans to breed and rear their young. I think I am even jealous of their freedom and ability to go wherever they please without getting lost, as my sense of direction is not so great, although it has improved over the years, especially since I am the navigator during our travels in the motorhome. To summarise, this picture speaks to my heart: travel and freedom and… what is beyond that horizon?

I would now like to nominate Steven Saysell (are we related?) from Sayvan Photography at https://thisthatandwhateverelseicanthinkof.wordpress.com/ for this challenge. Steven is another keen traveller and photographer based in Ontario, Canada and he never fails to delight his readers with his stunning shots.

The challenge is: Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.

A magnificent sight!

A magnificent sight!

Continuing with our relaxing walks on a Sunday morning on this gorgeous West Sussex coastline, we were lucky enough to witness the most amazing geese migration, which, to our delight, came in wave after wave completely by surprise and flew right over our heads!

Here are a few shots of the beach near Littlehampton and the mesmerising geese.

The forerunners (or should I say forefliers?
