Often when you are out and about your eyes are caught by a swan. They are so commonplace you tend to sweep over them. They are definitely worth some time to watch their behaviours. This morning three males were being aggressive and showing off while a family of swans were nearby. The fast ‘torpedo’ swans were lowering their necks holding out their wings and generally moving very fast. A few months ago I saw a very distressing scene as an older swan seemed to try and drown a juvenile. Eventually the young swan escaped through the vegetation at the edge of the water. Even just watching swans eat is enjoyable and fascinating .
