Swan Diary #9

I took a bike ride down to the swan pond yesterday,the sun was shining but the signs of autumn approaching are clear. The reeds and leaves on the trees are turning, the bustling noisy swallows that I seen in the summer are long gone with only a few stragglers remaining.

The geese are gathering in the fields getting ready for their long journeys ahead. As I got nearer the pond, the cygnets and swans greeted me and I couldn’t believe the size of them.Fully grown now, the cygnets are larger than their parents.

Cygnets are as big as their parents now.
