Melbourne : Above the Swans

The Eureka used to be the natural centre. But not any more.


Stopped by the lake to practice my drone skills before the weather turns nasty (well wind is ... and heat ... ).


I visited the lake a few weeks ago noticing several beautiful young cygnets with their adoring parents. Walked the shore after landing the drone finding at least two families with four healthy nearly mature cygnets each. And countless other adults. The one pair were near enough for me to notice they were tagged P43 (Female) and K60 (Male). Updated on the database. The lake is also extraordinarily popular with many other birds.
