I ended up with a late lunch today but I was so glad when I walked along by the river and noticed a swan’s cygnets were hatching… so I stood and watched as 6 or 7 of the little fluffy babies emerged from their eggs, were cleaned up by their mother, and started to walk around. So very cute. Thankfully I had my trusty finepix f10 with me so took some snaps (from a safe distance – swans can be evil!).

Making a run for it
The one on the left got stuck on its back… wanted to go and rescue it!
I’m not suggesting these photos are anything special but if you do wish to use them anywhere please make sure you ask me first, thanks.
