    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Tina 🙂💜 They are very protective of their young and we’re always very mindful of that. They know us very well and trust us, so with us they’re always friendly. I’ve had to protect them from an out of control Labrador once and they know I’m on their side 😉💖 xxx


    1. Thank you dear Laurie 🙂💜 Yes, there’s only one cygnet now and he doesn’t look as strong as last year’s cygnets at this time. Fingers crossed he’ll make it 🙂💖🍀 xxx
