Yesterday saw the arrival of a pair of swans that had nested locally and brought their young up on to the canal. Unfortunately when they left the lake where their nest was situated they left the seventh member of their family behind. Eddie; one of the locals, rounded up the cygnet and drove round until he found the rest of the family and plopped it back into the canal. The whole family have been swimming around the basin today. It's a great location for them because they get plenty of food from people on the boats and visitors to the area.
Sorry for the short post today, but I need to go and swap a boat in the painting dock.
More on that tomorrow!
Best regards, David.
