Seven swans a-swimming!


Seven swans a-swimming!

Chased down the canal after these, they swim surprisingly fast!!
Amused and impressed me how well they protect the little cygnets.

Thanks HB! On Wednesday I saw baby ducklings at the GC, I think it's a second brood or a very late one?

30 Jun, 2012

 

That's so nice. I haven't seen any yet.....

The ducklings were only the second lot I have seen this year.
