Penny Still Away

Our resident female Swan, Penny has now been away for 10 more days with her new mate Slim.
In all her years on the river she has never been away so long. It seems she is determined to find a suitable new mate that she can bring back to her home territory. 

Maybe Slim  is not old or stable enough to be her partner. She has a couple of months to find a new mate and return, before her territory is claimed by another pair. My feeling is she will not give up this nesting site easily, it has been far too successful.
