Cold Comfort

Yet another bitterly cold day with horrendous hail showers and cutting wind, coldest May I can ever remember !  The birds don't exactly relish it either, lack of Sun and warmth does not provide the insect life or river weed growth needed for feeding and keeping out the cold.

Provision of soft lettuce and lawn grass for the cygnets as they grow rapidly, nearly doubling in size from birth.

 Penny took them to the shelter of the island this morning, 

while the mother of the surviving links ducklings, keeps a careful watch over her brood.

Below,  Short video taken a few days ago Penny and cygnets having a wash and brush up !
