Rosanna does not like swans, it sounds like for good reasons, but I do. Gee the cygnets grow so quickly. They stay very close to the parent swans but as they grow, they venture further and further away. I am not afraid of them, but I would not let them within reach of my face. One tackled my shoelace one day.
It puzzles me as to where they go when they are mature, as only so many can be supported by one lake and the numbers seem quite constant over the years. What it not nice about them is the small dog sized droppings.
