WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY - Mount Stewart Swans with their Cygnets

I photographed these Swans with their cygnets when I took my family from Malawi there to see the magnificent House and Gardens at Mount Stewart, near Newtownards, Northern Ireland.  The cygnets are growing up fast and I must get back soon to see how they are getting on. 










 I am linking this post with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this Swan family again and thanks for visiting.

Many thanks to all who leaave comments on this post.

  3. There's something rather speciaal about cygnets. And it's good to watch how good their parents are in looking after their brood. "Keep well clear" the usual advice.

  4. The original 'ugly ducklings' I think - I managed to get a few pictures of Mute Swans in Scotland - may not seem that remarkable, but they were a year tick for me!!

  11. Your photos are wonderful, and the cygnets are cute. Unfortunately they, just like our children and grandchildren, grow up entirely too fast.

  14. I actually spotted a Mute swan family the other day. A late hatch as it seems. Only saw them from afar though.

  16. Lovely! The last time I saw cygnets was when I was in England. We don't really get them around here too often.
