Safe Harbour

Popeye and Penny as is their custom, have taken the cygnets to the harbour within days of hatching.

The high walls and calm water with grass verges, suits the swans temperament. It is not without it's dangers though, as there are Blackback gulls sometimes perched on the floodlights, and a pair of dangerous crows always on the lookout for a victim.

However today our skilled and experienced duo, kept them close and enjoyed the warm atmosphere, with the cygnets having a well guarded snooze beside Mum.  Weather permitting, the cygnets will be taken to the open sea any day now.
