Mute swans










The mute swans raised six cygnets this summer.
They were a big attraction for people
walking around Töölönlahti bay.
They were all still there today (26.11.2013)
all grown up and looking good.
More photos to come when
I've had time to go through them.

I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.

  6. Wonderful images of the cygnets... we watched over a couple of nests this year but one was abandoned then the youngsters we did see were predated.
