Cygnets | by Dan Belton ( No Badger Cull )

Last babies of the day, two of the seven mute swan cygnets, I was so pleased they brought them over to see me. One of the highlights of the year for me when you see cygnets for the first time, they certainly make you wait for 'em ! I'm desperate for a shot of them riding on mum's back but they only seem to do it on the first few days after hatching, they tried to clamber on but kept falling off........I heard the cuckoo again today, no chance of seeing it though.
