I’ve kept an eye on the Mute Swan family in Viera and when I went by this week, the eggs had finally hatched.
I think I could count 7 babies. They’re quite far from the nest in this photo and Mom is keeping them well away from the road.
Here’s another photo from a week earlier. Papa was patrolling and looks like he’s about to fall asleep.
If you’d wanted to stop and see them, it’ll be harder to find them now. They’ll be foraging and may not be anywhere near the nest.
I’m happy that they’re doing well so far.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some photos!
