Some Awwww pics

I saw something quite rare this afternoon. The Cob had 4 cygnets in the moat himself, and the Pen was on the nest with the other 4. I have never seen them split up this way when newly hatched. I think the depth and proximity of the moat to the nest, and the fact that both adults could see each other at all times helped. It makes me wonder if there is still an unhatched egg in the nest, I shall check this out tomorrow. The island and swans have drawn quite a few onlookers today all hoping to see the Cygnets - fear not - they will be on the water much more often in the coming days. Meanwhile, enjoy a few awww pics taken today !
