How quickly cygnets grow!

Back in May I was out and about and I stopped at a rather good shop in Whittington called Castle Court Quilter – very apt they have a great array of quilting/patchwork fabrics plus excellent workshops, an enormous workspace with huge quilting machines and they are opposite the castle which is very picturesque. I spied these scrummy babies with their proud mum and dad who had their scruffy nests on the grass verge by the pavement. Six in total.

I guess this is mum doing the babysitting while dad is taking a nap.

I revisited them later in the year in August and was amazed at the speed in which they grow, still grey though.

This is the family about a month ago, they are as big as mum and dad and they are turning white. isn’t nature wonderful?
