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


The rain hasn’t helped the workmen doing the Lake. Once again the Met Office got it wrong. For the past four days I have been coping their forecast from their website and also the local weather. I am sure that I don’t need to tell you that over the past four days they got the forecast correct on one day. Yesterday the local forecast on the web was sunshine and cloud. It said the same this morning until about 10am when it told us that we were in for heavy rain. It had already been pouring down for two hours. Despite the rain the stream bed has been levelled and the bottom layer of baskets that will hold the stone are in place.

As long as all goes to plan the new Cob Swan will be collected tomorrow. To save it any stress we will probably let it straight onto the Lake when it gets here. I may just decide to let the resident Swans get use to it for an hour as the top layer of basket for the stone are not going in the Stream until Wednesday. They measure 2m x 1m x 1m large enough for the new Swan to go into for a short period as long as it does not get stressed.

Reading up on Black Swans last night, it told that Black Swan are the only Swans that will live with others amicably during the breeding period. That may just make me decide to keep the two pairs.
