Swans Mating Again

Love is in the air - at least as far as the Swans are concerned ! Last year we had no spring to speak of, perhaps we'll get two springs this year ! Today our beautiful Swans were canoodling in the river and I happened to be present with the camera. There was much too much to put on in one go, so I had to take short vids at a time. According to my Chinese friend at Mr Tans takeaway, he tells me that Chinese New year on the 3rd February is traditionally considered the first day of Spring - certainly the Swans and Ducks seem to agree.

The Pen seemed to be the prime mover once again, encouraging the Cob with much head dipping and neck caressing helping him along by dropping her wings - culminating in the video below.
