Ugly Ducklings?

A few days ago we helped take a boat up the Devizes flight of locks and in my blog post I included a swan’s nest.

Now we have helped take the boat back down and the cygnets have hatched out – or a few of them have.

How could they ever be described as ugly ducklings!

They are really very cute little birds and they do what they can to imitate mum.

Mum sucks something by the edge of the canal and so we do as well.

They are just delightful.

The remaining nest was now deserted. Many of the eggs had not hatched.

So these eggs failed, but at least three hatched out.
