Wordless Wednesday: Pond Swans

a swan and her two cygnets swimming towards the bank of a woodland pond

It is the first time we have seen two pond cygnets this year and they are looking well, albeit less muscular than the seven river cygnets.

It is lovely to meet them as last year we did not see any cygnets on the pond.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,

with love from Xenia xxx

    1. Thank you kindly dear Eliza πŸ’š These mute swans aren’t migratory and when the cygnets fledge they will join a nearby flock until they are ready to find a mate and build their own nest. The pen currently nesting on the river was born there herself (around five years ago) and returned after her mother’s passing 🧑 xxx

  1. I love to see these pond swans and the cygnet. Our small lake now has 5 swans and the original pair have their two cygnets who are looking quite big but still grey. We are not sure who the other swans are and why they have appeared. Perhaps they are all gathering, as the Canada geese do, to prepare for migration.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Anne πŸ’œ It is possible that the other whooper swans who have appeared are preparing for migration. Our native mute swans would never have tolerated another swan pair so close to their nest! 🧑 xxx
