Cygnets galore by jillhempsall

Cygnets galore

Out on my evening walk with my dog, along the side of the river. At this time of year it's pretty overgrown all the way and you can't see much of the water. I heard a noise or two and recognised it as a swan's chatter. I managed to spot the adult through the reeds and long grass, then a cygnet, the second adult, a cygnet, a cygnet, a cygnet, a cygnet and it just went on and on! Although this was supposed to be a quick walk because we were going out later I just had to back track to an area where I could actually see the water - and just wait. Eventually they arrived - two adults and NINE cygnets. I've never seen such a large family of swans before! Dad gave me a bit of a hiss, but then they all settled down and ignored me as I sat still and watched them feed. An awesome sight.
Wow, they did so well to have so many cygnets survive. Great shot.
