The Swan is about the same as yesterday. Tomorrow is the last full day that we intend to keep him in the stable as the last day of the antibiotic course ends on Tuesday. As soon as the last injection is given Tuesday morning I will return him to the Lake. There is still a lump in his neck caused by the hook and we have got to hope that it is not going to be a serious problem. As much as I want to believe it will not be a problem, I will not stop believing that he is going to survive for some weeks. Just a case of waiting and seeing.

The more I look at the other two Black Swans the more I am convinced that they are Pens. Although they are together a lot of the time now that the Cob is not on the Lake, very often when I go to give them a feed they are at either end of the Lake. When the Cob was on the Lake he was always pairing off with what I believe is a Pen.

Since we made the Lake until this year we have never had the Wildlife I had expected on it. This year there has been a lot more Ducks, Moorhens and Coots. One Moorhen is feeding with the Swans, the first time ever. Through the Winter I expect the Swans being on the Lake will encourage more Wildlife to it.

What I have got to sort out is how to make sure the Geese return next year. The Swans wont want any intruders now that they are establishing themselves on the Lake. I have a couple of ideas they will need looking in to.

As you have noticed Google has stopped the advertising on the website. The reason being that they believe it to be a serious risk to their advertisers. I appealed against their decision, but the appeal was not allowed.

Contents in the appeal decision makes me believe that the initial reason for the stopping us taking advertisement was because of a complaint. It could well be that the complaint was made by a person known to me. If I am correct, it is a pity that there are people like it.
