WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY - Mount Stewart Lake

 These are a few birds I photographed at Mount Stewart Lake all over last weekend while I was working at a fantastic event called 'Conversations' which i will tell you about hopefully next week.  The birds were mostly Mallard, some Black headed Gulls, Little Grebe and 2 Mute Swans. I am linking this post with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.



I was really going to look for the 3 cygnets that I have shown you before however I only found 2 adult and was a bit worried as to what had happened to the cygnets.


On asked a member of staff, she told me that the 3 cygnets with their parents were chased away by these 2 interloppers.  However the swan family apparently  successfully arrived at Strangford Lough. 




I hope you enjoyed these few images and thanks for visiting.

Many thanks for also leaving any comments on this blog.

  11. Glad the cygnets and their parents arrived safely in their new place after being chased away. My friend lives by a pond and some of the cygnets were killed this year by large turtles. They are so lovely!
