Swanning Around !

Hi folks,

Well the sun did have its' hat on so we went to the big lake where we had been before and Stone the Crows there were loads of babies about. This is the first family.................

Now before we start I am going to try, and I mean try to get these ere birds names right. The first is a male swan. I know that by the black bump on the top his bill. His name is George and Sally, Fred, Billy. Annie, Gerty, Jimmy and silly Berty bringing up the rear. Of course I jest and these are all Cygnets well seven of them are.


Water baby

These three kept close to Mum  (top left), I got this through a five bar gate after a lot of waiting about.

They kept swimming about but we knew where they settled at night due to the amount of feathers laying about, so after a long time BINGO I got them.

Tomorrow I will introduce you to a different family so watch this space.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, luv Mike XX

  3. Don't worry about the names of our feather friends just call them birds. I sure some people will inform you of the true name. Just keep posting the lovely photos, and enjoy taking the pictures.

    1. Will do Margaret, although I do find it interesting to find out what these "birds" are called. But I must say my first passion is in taking photos of all the lovely things around us whether they are bird, brick or stone.
