Lets see how the Cygnets are Doing!

We slipped up to Hatchetts Pond this afternoon to see how the Cygnets are coming on. Mum and Dad still have all seven cygnets and they all seem to be doing well.
The Cygnets are very quick to come when they realise that bread is being thrown, and the pond is a popular place for tourists and duck feeders. Sadly bread is not the best food for growing Swans but hopefully there is plenty of natural food around the pond as well.
The Black headed gulls were also keen to get some of the bread, causing the swans to hiss at them abit!
Karen and I had another delicious Ice cream.........Ice cream is maybe not the best food for humans but alas there was no salad bar available!
