|The goslings are 5 weeks old and are starting to look like real geese.
They are developing feathers and the top of the head, the neck and the breast becomes black.
I find Elise near the greenhouse sheltering against the wind. The geese see for the first time themselves mirrored in the glass. They are clearly surprised. Elise and I discuss the progress of the experiment. Than I film the group while moving to a rich grassy area. The goslings follow Elise beautifully.
