After hatching on Mon.&Tues they both on Wednesday took to the water for the first time.
After a while it was decided hitching was a good way to travel.
The nest still has 2 eggs but after mum getting back on the nest for minutes each time and turning the eggs i think she has sensed they arn`t gonna hatch for whatever reason and now it has been an hour since they all went off probably to find an easier place for the chicks to get in and out of the water as where the nest is the bank was to high.
It was nice to witness the first steps of life for these Cygnets and now i await the Moorhen and Coot broods to appear.
