Following on from the post yesterday which you can read here, I wanted to see if the Mute Swan on the precarious nest had any more hatched eggs, I was not sure how many eggs the swan had laid (4 or 5 was my estimate).
All pictures were taken with the X-T1 and XC 50-230mm lens.
On the way to the nest we passed this female Mute Swan (Pen) with a single cygnet which is quite unusual, they normal have larger clutches of eggs. I have seen this single cygnet sometime with one parent as n this picture and sometimes with both:
After taking (too?) many photographs Mike and I continued our walk along the Brayford (Lincoln University side) and saw another family of swans with 3 cygnets, at the front the Pen was flapping her wings a bit, the Cobb (male swan) was sitting down:
