Swan’s are one of the most magnificent & elegant water birds (in my opinion). Signets are equally as beautiful in their own fluffy way. Their soft grey down makes them look like little grey clouds floating on the water.
I managed to capture a few shots of this Swan & Signet, sadly not swimming together. The Signets are clearly a little older and more independent, so quite happy adventuring further away from their parents.
A visit to Rother Valley Country Park is one of our go to places to take in nature, while also getting in some exercise walking around the lakes.
On this occasion it was the swans that captured my attention. The overcast sky reflecting off the water, highlighting the contrast swan’s white plumage against the darkness of the water is what particularly caught my eye. There is never a shortage of water birds on the lake, so it didn’t take long for the resident geese to get in on action and try to steal the show.
