New Additions

Often some surprises along the riverside. This morning I thought Slim was in the process of expelling one of the cygnets, as he chased and jabbed at one of them. I thought briefly it was Runty, until I realised Runty was feeding close to my feet. A quick count revealed we had 8 cygnets !  

Seems that a lost cygnet had  latched onto Slim and Sue's family, probably been made to leave home by it's parents, as this is the time for cygnets breaking the family bonds.

                     If you count the cygnets in the photo you will see 8 instead of 7. 

Another newcomer hopped along the river path in my direction. 

These bunnies are usually on the opposite side of the river.
