WALKERS and boaters have noticed a new resident on the bank of the Rochdale Canal.

A goose has set up a nest in one of the planters by the canal bank at Fielden Wharf, Todmorden.

The goose has been in the planter for the past fortnight looking after several eggs.

Council wardens have advised people to keep their distance from the goose as she could get defensive to protect her young if she feels threatened.

An area around the planter has been taped off to prevent people from getting too near to the goose.

Signs have also been erected to advise people to keep their distance.
