Swan Diary #5

WEEK 5

The Pond was brimming with wildlife this morning, the Cygnets were looking even bigger than last week and there feathers are showing the first signs of going white. The Ducks are about the same size as the adults and I was finding difficulty telling the adults from the young.

I think the Coots have lost their eggs as they spent the whole time I was there,foraging for food, I could’nt spot the Pochard but the Heron was on the far side, taking it easy in the sun.

I could hear a Buzzard above me, so I got out the binoculars and spotted a crow chasing it into the trees away in the distance. Managed to get a few pics of the Damselflies that were at the side of the pond.
