Author's notes

There were Black Swans on every pond, but this family - the cygnets were sleepy on the bank, and Mum and Dad made encouraging calls, got them on the water, showed them how to drink, and then how to eat duckweed. It was a special moment. They knew we where there. Just watched in awe (and took photos).
