I’m really enjoying exploring my new territory. It only takes a few minutes to walk to the canal, so we often stroll along the towpath.
There is a family of swans that we often see – two adults and five cygnets. The male swan hates dogs! He puffs his feathers up and hisses as soon as he sees one. Each time we’ve seen him the bipeds have stayed between him and me and we’ve kept moving. I’ve always ignored his antics and just walked quietly past.
He’s seen me a number of times now and seems a little less worried by me. He still doesn’t trust me, but he just watches me carefully. I don’t take it personally because I don’t trust him either. I have never trusted swans since I saw a pair bullying the male biped to get his food.
The cygnets are more or less as large as the adults now, but they could still be described as ugly ducklings.
I’ve been so busy! I’ve got lots to tell you, but it will have to wait for next time.
I won’t be around for a few weeks as the bipeds are taking some holiday. I’m looking forward to taking some really long walks in the area.
See you soon!
