Saturday 13 September

The Swans had a slightly better year with one Cygnet after none last year.

 Edwina is still protective of her youngster but Dad Billy is beginning to show signs of seeing him/her off.

He/she is already trying her wings, not seen any flying yet but scooting up & down the lodge, it is also being allowed to roam with out the parents.

Friday 12 September

I took a few photos today but I like this one of the cat waiting patiently

She (I am convinced it was female as it was pretty) was down Sunny Brow among the brambles, she looked white but had tinges of ginger on her coat, we watched her for a few minutes and she watched us.
