Growing Fast



The cygnets are growing by the day and will shortly be the size of Geese.


With an abundance of river weed and my daily provision of mixed grain wild bird seed, wholemeal and grass, they are thriving.


A few photos today in spite of the leaden skies and drizzle, showing the family coming to the moat for a feed. 




Notice how the little ones now take the lead, with no more threat from crows or the like !


The  last photo is me having a conversation with a few of the little ones !

The only thing missing in that last photo is the sound of them peeping and squeaking. Lovely to see you caught them mid head bob as they were saying hello to you.

Yeah, they love to communicate with the head nodding and peeping.
