All 10 swans are safe and sound. There were four by the beach, four under the bridge that we walk under when walking along the Lullwater from the Peninsula to the Nethermead, and two more in the lake. The two in the lake were in a hole in the middle of the thin sheet of ice that was there today. Apparently they had just landed and broken through the ice when landing.
About 20 geese on the lake today. Goose-busting man and dog were also there, having parked his car near the Peninsula. They were walking near the geese, but the dog wasn't barking ot going after them. We have no idea why they might be there in the middle of winter.
So nice to see so many birds. Hopefully, they'll all stay fine and healthy.
