Mute Swans have been successfully reproducing in this location for at least the last five years. This is one of last season's cygnets.

They stayed close to the shore line and repeatedly bobbed their heads in the water. They all stayed relatively close together in the water.

The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is a species of swan, and thus a member of the waterfowl family Anatidae. It is native to much of Europe and Asia, and (as a rare winter visitor) the far north of Africa. It is also an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa. The name 'mute' derives from it being less vocal than other swan species. Measuring 125 to 170 centimetres (49 to 67 in) in length, this large swan...
