Our little Mute Swan cygnet is now around 3 weeks old, and growing rapidly!
Now that it has grown stronger and has survived the first and most vulnerable weeks of it’s life, the parents have relaxed their guard, although they are still careful not to let the cygnet stray too far from their sides.
As the family spent time in the harbour gap this morning, the cygnet fed on the vegetation in the shallow water by the water’s edge, allowing me to get some close up images that I have been waiting for.
