This afternoon I went for a wheelie in my chair. I was travelling on the opposite river bank for a change and suddenly I had to stop to take a closer look at this pair of swans. They were together, one a little smaller than the other. They seemed to be a bit different to the usual swan pairs I see. I could not say why, but they were very much occupied with one another.
It was then that an elderly couple walked along and also saw the swans. The man said to me “Are they nesting, it looks like it”. I told him I had no idea, but on a closer look, yes there were feathers everywhere and the sitting swan was probably keeping her eggs warm. sitting in the nest. I could not get closer and did not really want to as I did not want to disturb them. It is the time of year now that the babies will soon be arriving.
What a wonderful site on an afternoon. Our quiz was solved in any case.
