The Weekend in The Forest

On Saturday I slipped up to Hatchetts Pond and found the second pair of swans now have three little cygnets.The Pen was still sitting on the nest on Thursday so these are fairly young!
Today we walked along Dockens Water, one of the small streams in the Forest. Along the banks the pretty little speedwell was in flower.
This broad Bodied chaser was prowling up and down
and these large red damselflies were getting rather friendly!
Back at the pond the goslings and ducklings are all doing well and the Irises are in flower

I had no idea that the baby swans were so tiny and little balls of fluff...I just see them when they are older...I enjoyed your series below as well Mary...cheers.
