An Egyptian in Crawley
Meandering around the western periphery of Crawley I came across the Ifield Mill Pond.
I was quite surprised to see Egyptian Geese interspersed amongst the Canada Geese and Mallard.
Why would they congregate here?
Well, this particular species has evolved into a prodigious scavenger.
They feed off the discarded shopping trolleys found submerged in Crawley’s ponds and lakes.
Mind you, the pond is vast and looked like it’s worth another visit.
