Training Time

Time is rolling on and August marks the start of training for many young birds. The Pen has re-taken the lead role on training up the cygnets for their first flying lessons. This is usually around the end of the month. The ducks too are learning to fly and pretty soon all this years young will be airborne. The fabulous Mother of 12 is still on the go guarding her brood and the adopted orphan, none have yet fallen victim to the Mink. Even Steven the injured gull is honing his skills, running around the garden grabbing at sticks and stones. (see vid below).
