Cygnets at 6 Weeks

Cygnets are surprising many by their rapid growth, this is quite normal at 6 weeks they are almost the size of a goose !

 The grain bill this year will be substantial with 11 swans and I suspect around 100 + ducks to feed.
With Trust members now numbering 70 and more promised, the cost burden will be much reduced.
We have a few ducklings currently surviving on the river, but I won't speak too soon for they won't be totally safe for a while yet. 

The Wildlife photo competition ends on Monday, so I would advise you get the last minute entries in NOW !
