A SWAN SIGHTING

A couple of weeks ago I was reading our local 'Next-Door' app, and someone said they had seen a pair of swans on Walney Pond, and that they were still there the next day.  I told Gregg and he said we should head on over there. I heartily agreed as we had not seen this elegant bird in I can't remember when.  It was a perfect day weather-wise.  However, there is a story about those swans which I will tell you about tomorrow.  

Thanks for dropping in and I hope your day is a great one.

  2. This photo is elegant and beautiful. But it does look like a painting, and not an actual photo.

  9. Swans are beautiful birds. Here we have a lot of Whooper Swan (Cygnus cygnus), and mute Swan (Cygnus olor). They look great when the birds gather together in the autumn into large flocks.
