This is the last film clip I have of the family. The garden is strangely quiet today. The geese are such an important part of our annual cycle of life that their absence creates a silence and a loss that seems unnatural - yet such events are as much a part of the natural order as the more prevalent celebrations of life.

Looking out of the window this morning we spotted a deer with her fawn running across the garden. So perhaps this animal baby was both lucky and has a competent caring parent.
