Eyeing up the Island

Still waiting on the Pen to start flying lessons with the cygnets, but she seems in no hurry at all this year. Perhaps they plan to keep them over the winter like last year, and a possible reason might be the visit of two Swans looking for a new home last week ! Swans nesting territory is always at a premium, and the lower river is always attractive to young swans. Keeping the cygnets until spring is a useful insurance against squatters, as was proved by last years brood.
