Swan Lake?

This video of two mute swans doing some synchronised swimming was sent to me by a couple of good friends who follow beestonbirdman.blog. I understand that this behaviour is part of pair bonding or territorial establishment. I’ll leave the choice of appropriate musical accompaniment to your imagination. 🙂

The NTU peregrines have now produced two eggs which are being brooded here by one of the pair this morning (20th).

    Is the swan on the left, the best man?

    Not sure, they wouldn’t say being mute swans 🙂
