Yesterday’s trip to the SwanPond was a washout, torrential rain put a halt to my filming and after taking cover under some trees I headed home for a warm coffee and a seat in front of the TV to watch Stage 1 of this years TourdeFrance. So it was with a sense of hope that I headed down to the pond this morning for ‘Take 2′ of Swan Diaries, Week 6. The cygnets are about a third the size of mum and dad now and there front is showing a bit of white feathering coming through.
Cygnet’s are about 1/3 the size of an adult

Horses in Buttercup Field
On my bike ride home I spotted a field which was a sea of buttercups with a few ponies in it.
Also the wheat fields are growing quickly, and it’s so nice to see the waves that the wind creates brushing through field.
