    Really nice pics. I have a memory of my setter running up the hill to me, with a goose egg in her mouth. It wasn't damaged at all. I put it back in the nest - hope the goose didn't reject it. That's what I call a "soft mouth".

    The sight for the nest may have been selected because it makes the nest easier to defend against predators, and it's less likely to be flooded out if water levels rise. Perhaps the latter has happen in the past, to this goose. Unlike humans, this goose has learn when you're around a flood plain, it is best to seek high ground for a nest. You might, of course, like to argue if this makes a goose more intelligent the humans who build on the water's edge and end up being flood out from time to time.
