Missing Swan

Post by duxbury rambler » Sat Sep 10, 2011 12:36 pm

Noticed he was missing on Thursday, not seen any one to ask about him. There was another juvenile on that morning it was being chased by Edwina she saw it off and it flew towards Charnock. Lonely Lucy last years youngster was on the Top Lodge keeping company with the Heron.

This morning the youngsters were getting a flying lesson from mum - not seen them in the air yet, just running on the water.
