The Swan Family at Hatchetts Pond

This afternoon we went back to the pond to see if we could get some photos of the cygnets

We walked round the pond until we could see the Cygnets in the reeds , we waited and waited and eventually they came up on to the bank

The swans are very good parents keeping constant guard over their 7 little cygnets

They are just so adorable

They really are adorable. And they raise an important question for me: how could any storyteller ever think a baby swan is an UGLY duckling? I don't care what species they are, those kids are just cute, cute, cute.

Lovely family. We had two nesting Mute Swans near my house and last week I saw one of the adults was lying in the water on its side. The surviving swan is still tending to the nest. I don't know if the eggs will hatch or not. It should be any day now if they are going to.
