Swan Preening at Seven Sisters

Just a very small sample of some shots taken at Seven Sisters today. Two beautiful mute swans were gliding along the waterway, pausing to graze beneath the surface and occasionally stopping to preen their feathers.

      Darko, thanks. Yes, we’ve had some sunshine lately. Long may it last (which probably signals downpours for a week 😉 )
