I caught sight of the two local swans and their five cygnets yesterday morning and, eventually, they came close enough for a photo. The cygnets must be almost fully grown now; it was so good to see them and to know that, this year, they survived.
The picture shows a close-up of one of the cygnets off Hythe foreshore, Southampton Water, Hampshire, at 09:21 on Monday 29th October 2012.
