Christmas Day At The Island

With gales and heavy rain the river is running high, but now starting to ease before the next Storm on Friday !

There was no Sign of the Swans today in the river or the harbour, then out of the blue the flew in from the seaward side, buffeted by strong winds they landed safely at the rivers edge.

After their Christmas Feed close to the island Popeye and Penny continued to give them the odd peck, but still not serious about chasing them for good. 

Some of the young ones climbed onto the island, perhaps taking stock for the future ?
