This shot was taken back in January when the cygnets were only a day or two old. In this shot there are only two cygnets but there were four. Unfortunately now there are only two. I don’t know what happened to them.

    Just gorgeous Al !
    I hate to see dogs off their leads around areas like this …..

  • Hi Trish! Me too. This swan couple has lived in Ponder Bay, or Lake Ginninderra anyway for I can’t remember how long and up until their prevous clutch of cygnets, when they lost four out of six, I don’t remember them losing any. I don’t know if it’s dogs, foxes, idiot teenagers or something else. Thanks for the comment and the fav Mate. xox
