Lost....and Found !

Yesterday saw another drama with one of the cygnets almost being lost. Again the horrendous May weather with blustery gale force winds being the main problem. The Family were trying to get back into the harbour at low tide, but the wind and current proved too strong for one of the cygnets. After several minutes paddling to stand still, it tired and got washed downstream, the rest of the family made it into the harbour. I ran across the bailey bridge and down river across from the cygnet, trying to make sure no black backed gulls would get it. Unaware of the missing cygnet I drew the family's attention to it, eventually the entire family came to the cygnets rescue. They later all made it back to the harbour. Thankfully there were no black backs or hoodies in the vicinity.
