Walking on Water

The Nairn Cygnets are looking great - healthy and strong and in perfect condition for flying. I was a bit too far away today to see them having a wee sortie up the river, but I took a couple of distance shots showing them treading water with the wings going. The parents watched their progress but took no part in the exercise. With High tides due late next week I think they will be making daily trips to the seaweed near the swimming pool, this might give them a chance for short sea flights if the weather is mild. Soon they 'll be taking off, flying and landing like the cob in the lower pics. With a 2 metre wingspan they will look and sound great in flight !
