We were only saying the other day we've never seen swans carrying cygnets on their backs, so here's how our Sunday started. One poor little cygnet was trying to hop on and just as they passed the boat he jumped onto mum's tail. We had the pleasure of meeting this family the other day when they popped past for a snack.
Plus, our neighbours right opposite with their brood of 8 moorhen chicks keep us amused. The parents come to get the porridge we've put on the bank. We guess it must be quite a squash in their nest as they spend a good bit of time in there. This morning all the little ones were out & about and one parent appeared to doing some major house work before they all got back in.
Last Wednesday we had a lovely helping our friend Annie back to her mooring in Marsworth after her weekend trading at Berkhamsted floating market. We rarely get to do locks together as one of us is on the boat. And we didn't take any photos.
