Our swans are back! We'd been missing Mr and Mrs Swan as they hadn't been seen for a while but they're back with three adorable cygnets. They must've been nesting upstream. The people who used to live in our house told me they've known Mr Swan (known locally as Flappy because of his flappy foot) for sixteen years since he was a wee cygnet himself.
They were riding on Mum's back - I've never seen that before. So cute.
