Starting from number eleven there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

This place is called “Rest and be Thankful in Scotland – Rosie’s Mum in Toronto

More from Banksy.

This one was accredited to “Local Artist and Damien Hirst” Damien Hirst is also a local artist! Julia

There has been a bi-plane in the main hall at the museum for about as long as I can remember – Banksy added an escapee from Guantanamo Bay! Julia

This burnt out ice cream van doubled up as the enquiries office! Julia

This is my absolute favourite – the Lion got the Tamer! Ha! Julia

We let the Cygnets onto the Lake this morning. They are keeping out of peoples way who are going to the Lake and are spending all of the time at the far end to where we had released them. Where they were at Cricket, they would not have had a lot of contact with people, so it is going to take them a while to get use to our Holiday Guests and those fishing on the Lake. I would expect them to soon to get use to people and hopefully they will become friendly.

Last night we left them in a stable as it was to late to release them. When we collected them they were in large bags with just their heads and necks visible. They were please to be out of the bags but I thought that I may have had a bit of trouble catching them this morning. They all made threatening hisses when I was catching them, but they were less aggressive than I imagined they would be.

I am hoping that they will eventually use the island to settle at night. I went there this morning in the rowing boat, before we released the Cygnets to cut the grass, weeds and bull-rushes to make an area for them to use, it will make them a lot safer if they do use it. I should hope that until they get use to their new home they might stay on the water at night. I haven’t seen them on the banks of the Lake yet, that shows they are not confident of their new surroundings. They are going close to the bank where the Geese would lay at times. The water is quite shallow there, so the Cygnets are able to stand in the water.
