The hungry goose never stopped moving looking for tasty eelgrass to eat. Brandt are in decline due to a die-off of eelgrass all along the West Coast of North America, but there is still a large Winter population of Brandt here.
Here on the lee slope of the hill there is a common walking path that loops up and around and back down again. It crosses several people’s land, including ours. The handful of us who live here walk it regularly. Some stretches go through the forest - here is the entrance to under the trees just north of our house. No stooping to get through - that hole is plenty big. Gives a good idea of how tall the trees are (and how dark the forest).
