Swannie River

We took the dog up the lane last week and noticed two swans sitting on a nest at the junction where a small drainage ditch meets a slightly larger one.
We decided to park the car and walk the dog that far back so that I could take a picture. Typically by the time we got there, both swans had gone.
Two nights ago we did the same thing and struck gold.
My photos aren’t very good as I only have a cheap camera and the zoom shots are a bit blurry, but you can just see the treasure at the back on the right.

Digital Camera Whether this is the cob or pen I don’t know, but the parent to be was protective, even though we were high up on the bank.

Digital CameraEvery year we have swans in this particular drain.
Last year, a pair had 2 cygnets.
I counted 5 eggs. I’ll keep you posted.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
