Swans and cygnets
Here they are again. There are still 7 cygnets, they seem to be doing remarkably well.
The weather hasn't been very good this week, it's rained every day so far which seems about normal for a half-term holiday.
This picture shows the family in the middle of the lake, probably about a hundred yards away. I thought, for just a moment, about getting closer by walking about a mile, round one end of the lake and along the other side. Then I realised that by the time I'd done that they would probably have moved over to where I started off, and it would probably have started raining again. They don't mind the rain, they're water birds and have feathers that deal with the wet.
.....Thank you for all your comments this week, I truly appreciate each and every one. I'll try to answer them very soon, this week is school half-term holiday so I'm a bit distracted.
