An Upcoming Romance? by KeldBach An Upcoming Romance? by KeldBach
A pair of Mute Swans (Cygnus olor) has arrived at our local Lagoon. It's the same pair as last year, but the male doesn't seem to be the least interested in his lady counterpart. Every time she catches up with him, he turns his back to her and moves on... But perhaps that's part of their mating ritual. Let's see how it goes; it's still only early Spring. See also a closer look at the male below:

Thanks, Cecily. I hope they'll sort out their problems and get a happy family life. It could be fun with some small ducklings (or Cygnets, as they're called) during the summer :D
