Swan Lake

I had an encounter with a swan earlier this year while on a walk by Loch Ken. A washed up tree trunk on the shore made a seat for my lunchtime picnic. All was quiet and the view across the loch lovely.

A swan caught sight of me from a long way off and paddled over. I thought he was after my sandwiches but nope – he showed no interest in them at all.

He fiddled about in the long grass at the water’s edge for a while then wandered over to say hello.

with a non-too friendly peck at my foot!

Before standing up to his full height and giving me a look that said ‘I am the boss around here!’

so I let him have his tree trunk back 🙂
