HAPPY NEW YEAR....for some !

The Cygnets are still being hounded by the parents, and we are now down to 6 in the harbour this morning. The other big male is still being singled out and made to leave the river time and again. I get the impression that the parents are chasing the males who have been canoodling with their sisters, so not such a happy new year for them ! The parents are often alone and have already made the break from their offspring, it's just down to the weather as to when they decide to push them out for good.
