New Cygnets

The pair of swans nesting on the pond next to the fishing pond brought the cygnets out onto the fishing pond today and they look more than a day old as can be seen on the photos there are eight, she has probably been keeping them under cover for a few days. Last year was the first time they nested, but on the long pond and produced five very late in the season and managed to raise them satisfactorily. The major problem for them now is if they try to move them up the path to the long pond, having to navigate a gate the cows and the fence.
