What is happening to the birds?

At this time of year the river is usually crowded with ducklings in all stages of development and the wilderness that is my garden rustling with young birds still being fed by their parents. But not this year.

We have a pair of swans on the weir as permanent residents and last year they raised five cygnets. This year they reappeared alone.

I'm now on summer holidays - officially! So I won't be blogging as frequently. I'm going to enjoy a lazy August - here's wishing happy summer holidays to you all!
