Cygnet Seeks Company

The lone Cygnet that arrived in the river last week is still around. It has been persistently trying to get close to Penny and Duke with little success.

Penny, having got rid of her own brood several weeks ago is in no mood to adopt a stray  female cygnet, and Duke is backing her up by harassing it from time to time. It was banished to the waters edge this morning, so I had the chance for a little conversation as I took a couple of pics.

It is much smaller than Penny's cygnets but appears in good health. The serrated edges to the bill can clearly be seen.
