Where Are Your Babies?

A short distance rom home is our local park. We (Spotty & I) find lots to interest us on these walks.

The first place we come to is the bottom pond. Back at the beginning of the year a pair of swans came to live. For the past year there were no swans and the previous ones had migrated up the the middle pond.

It has been exciting watching them settle in as they made friends with the ducks and seagulls.

I believe they are a young pair and this is their first season to nest. Our weather has been unusually cold for a long while but the female, once it had warmed a little began to build her nest with the help of her mate. As they did this the heron came to watch.

Spotty and I are waiting in anticipation for the hatching of the cygnets and dissapointed they have not arrived. I wonder if she has any? or is it a false alarm.

I love to see the babies in Spring.

This year, as in every year, their are a pair of swans on the local canal. We walk this way to town to visit the pet store. This year being no exception were able to see their babies. here are the photos.
