Silly Cygnets

Two of last years cygnets decided to return home last week, they looked healthy and obviously not starved. they were followed by 5 more cygnets today but they were not our last years offspring.

Popeye was on nest guarding duty and Penny was too busy foraging for minerals to notice them. That all changed when Popeye was freed from nest guarding duties and he promptly set about getting them out of the river ! 

One of them was determined to stay and kept coming back, which gave me the chance of a few overhead shots.

 The sound from those magnificent wings was just musical !
