    1. Thank you Tracy, the arctic wind made it feel very chilly here. This morning the wind has changed direction and we are enjoying a warm south-westerly breeze – temperatures up to 18C are forecast for today! 🌞💜 xxx

    1. Thank you dear Laurie, it is such a great story and I am so grateful to witness their new family growing. The cygnets all have their own personalities too :o) xxx
