And in today’s superb news: ‘our’ swans at the lake a couple of hundred metres away have 5 babies. 🥳 🐦

I thought I’d sneaked up, but no… Two of the cygnets hitched a ride on mum as they all glided away.

Last year most babies disappeared. I hope things go better this year.

Female and male swan with 5 cygnets swimming between them. Two cygnets have climbed on to mum. Male swan with bent neck, drinking, female and cygnets beside him.
