Jumbalina returns update 27 October 2015
HI there all you nature lovers.
An egyptian gosling was seen on our driveway in 2013 surrounded by a few cats. My young granddaughter rushed outside to do the rescue.
She called the Gosling JUMBO and the only way we could raise JUMBO was to buy two baby chicks, which we did. Jumbo and those chicks grew up to adulthood and when all were fully feathered they were realeased into our bird area.
The first pic above is taken the day Rhaene rescued the gosling from a few cats. The second pic above taken just before she flew off not to return. When she grew up it was quite normal for her to go off and return but then came the day she did not return and I had told Rhaene it would only be a matter of time till she left to join her kind in nature. My Granddaughter had a hard time coming to terms with this and when she would visit regularly she would ask about Jumbo. Which had a name change as by the call we realised JUMBO was in actual fact Jumbalina.
The duck in the pic with her above, is once again in most pics I have taken on the 25th - she clearly remembers the bond they shared at that time, it is also very obvious that the red bill recognises her as well

Her constant companion the red bill - this clearly proves they do not forget
At my feet
Feeling very AT HOME...
Thank you for your time, hope this walk down memory lane was a beautiful experience for you as it has been for us being part of this amazing birds life since 2013.
This is the 4th day JUMBALINA remains visiting us.
