New Year

New Year always brings changes to the riverside, and new Swans migrate looking for new territory. 

Popeye and Penny guard their Island haven closely and immediately see off any intruders. 

This was the case yesterday when a lone swan landed close by. 

Our resident pair were quick to respond from their peaceful slumbers at the island. The young intruder wasted no time in keeping well clear of our formidable pair !

Peace was restored and a flock of Redshanks stood in shallows amid the low winter Sun.
