I took these pictures today.
I’m a little disappointed in their clarity, but we’re working on it!
These are two ducklings from one of the first hatchings this year and are the same size, although fluffier, as these females which were a little way along the bank.
This adolescent swan was waiting for us as we came out of the laundry this morning.
It is likely to be one of last year’s cygnets (believe it to be a male from the dark beak) as not all of his plumage was a perfect white but he wasn’t grey enough to be this year’s.
