Derwentwater, The Lake District.

Mute Swan  (Cygnus Olor)  this is a male or Cob, A pair have a nest at the south end of Derwentwater , and there is possibly a second pair at the Northern end where they have nested before. Also there are quiet a few of last years young on the lake.

Stay away from the wife and kids , or else !!

While wandering by the lake I found this beautiful patch of Wood Anemone

  3. The swan is majestic indeed. We have a large poulation here in Southern Ontario where it is not a native species. Some people advocate for its removal but I hope that never happens.

  8. I love the mute swans. We had some here from the early settlers but as they are not natural to the environment they are trying to remove them. Your header picture is amazing.
