Had a great walk round my local lake this morning, and the following are all from this mornings visit. Some different one's over on the other blog; except for this one.
So cute I had to put him on here too.

Mute Swan cygnet.

Here he is again

and with his mum

It wasn't all cygnets this morning though.

Grey Heron

A couple of Collared Doves. (see the blue sky!)

Female Tufted Duck

and finally

I hope the sun shines where you are.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
