I’ve been meaning to show these to you for a while … this is the second year they’ve nested on the slipway next to the water …

Last year they had four cygnets, although sadly none survived. I’m not sure how many they started with this year, but this little one is the only one I’ve seen. Perhaps they’ll have more success with just one to look after, but they don’t give the impression of being particularly clever swans … look where the nest is situated …

… right by the foot ferry sad.gif Nice to see them when you catch the boat, but hardly a safe place to raise the kids 533.gif
