Cygnet Banished

The new cygnet that joined the Nairn swans yesterday, was banished today. It was still there this morning but being harassed continuously by one particular cygnet. The pen finally got fed up with it and decided to separate the newcomer from the family. I watched along with the swan family, as she escorted it from the island to the moat. (The enclosed pics tell the story ). Later in the afternoon I watched as the cygnets flew in from the sea minus the new cygnet ! Peace has been restored on the river, and it looks like our swan family have no intention of leaving the river yet ! Sad that they chased the young cygnet away, hopefully it will find it's family or another welcoming flock.
