New Cygnet and Little Grebe

Had a report that a young cygnet was on the Dunbar golf course yesterday, and that someone was contacting the Scottish SPCA. When I arrived at the river yesterday afternoon, there was another cygnet with Penny, Duke and the adopted one as well. It looks about the same age and might well be from the same brood. 

This could be a blessing in disguise, since Penny and Duke might chase both of them away at the same time, giving each other company....we shall see.

The little Grebe is still very active around the Merryton bridge area too, 

the distinctive powder puff tail can be seen.
