Once again I have been a bit slow in getting my blog written. But I don’t go out that much, and you would get very bored with pictures of the park all the time!
However, you might remember that back in May our two resident Mute Swans hatched five cygnets. the adult swans were fantastic parents, guarding the little ones very closely.
Unhappily, two of the young cygnets were attacked and killed by a dog. or so it is reported. It might have been a heron, or a crow or even a pike in the lake, but whatever happened, two of the youngsters were lost.
The remaining three cygnets have grown and grown, and are now as big as their parents.
They will stay the buff/brown colour for a year or two yet, and may stay as a family next year. it rather depends on what the two adults do!
This was one very angry adult swan this morning. He seems to think he owns the place!
their wings are very beautiful, especially the young ones. I enlarged the wings up from the two photos above, as they are so soft and lovely!
And lastly, my favourite picture!
Thank you, all my faithful readers, if you have got this far! Will try to get a better blog next time!
