First Cygnets

Hoping to see some cygnets we made a trip to a stretch of the canal where we had seen nesting Mute swans. Our trip was a success as we saw 3 cygnets. 

As they could not reach the food at the bottom of the canal their parents were bring the weed up to the surface.

Our cygnet mission accomplished we moved on and saw this Wall Brown butterfly

A Reed warbler

and Chaffinch

The cygnets were not the only youngsters and we saw this juvenile Starling
