The Cygnets now 12 weeks old enjoying a grass feed. They also enjoy thinly sliced carrot about a millimetre thick, as well as wholemeal, granary, and seeded batch. River weed is beginning to grow back after being washed out by the big spate, lets hope the weather stays fine for a while yet! The cygnets are half grown now and the Pen should be flying again next week after growing her new flight feathers, the cob will start shedding his shortly.
The Pen will be teaching them to fly in September, prior to them leaving in October.
Tourists can be heard enjoying the cygnets having a bath earlier today!
