only six Cygnets on day 53

Six of the best
Day 53 only 6 left
Today 24th July 2011 I went in search of the cygnets. They appeared at last from the reed beds with one parent in attendance. Unfortunately only six came out, where the seventh one has gone is a mystery for the time being. There have been no rumours of its disappearance so one can only hope it's safe with the other parent somewhere.
