Lefty is Put Right

Tonight with tension mounting, I removed the bandage I put on Lefty the cygnet last Sunday - to reset the Angel wing. I am delghted with the result and the wing looks in perfect shape with the primary flight feathers now resting in the correct position against the body. I took the bandage off a little earlier than originally planned to give it time to settle, before returning it to the river to rejoin the family. Earlier he dosed away the hours with Steven for company. The final hurdle will be tomorrow when reunited with the family- will he be rejected by the parents ? I will have to choose the time and place carefully and make it as smooth as this space !
