Swans and sygnets

Hi everyone – I love birds and have a particular soft spot for swans.  One day where I worked there was a river close by and a railway line.  One sygnet mis-judged the overhead cables and landed in the yard.  I managed to calm the poor thing and sat on the concrete next to it for over an hour whilst it drank some water and recovered from it’s experience.  It is hard for a swan to take off from a hard surface, (they need to paddle the water with their feet), and after a couple of tries and quick flapping of wings it took off, circled and away.  I felt good, happy that I could help.

The above picture is a Twilleys of Stamford Design.  It needs stretching and framing. Must save up the pennies.
