Spring is in the air

The local lake has been a hive of springtime activity recently.

This pair of Mute Swans were really getting down to business a few days ago.

After all that furious splashing about, it was time to take a breather.

And then a good wash and brush up.

When all that's done, time to let the neighbours know just how you feel.

And in other news .....................

The Mallards are still frisky ...................... anywhere and anytime

with the inevitable results.

 She's got her work cut out.

The Great Crested Grebes continue doing a great job of keeping the invasive Crayfish numbers down,

and Whisky just loves to watch and learn.

Have a great weekend
