New Visitors

This morning saw the arrival of two new Swans in the river.

Couldn't tell if it was Slim with a new mate, or a completely new pair. Duke and Penny were further up by the Merryton bridge unaware or uninterested. 

The new pair only stayed for a couple of hours then moved back down to the sea.

This is the time of year when newly paired swans start moving around looking for spring nesting sites. It's unlikely that Penny and Duke will venture far from their home turf now.
