The black swan


We have a black swan that lives quite happily with all the other white swans and even seems to be the leader. We had quite a high tide this week and I was able to take this photo from our window. It's not very good, but enough for you to see it.

Oh dear Anonynmous. I am so sorry. No, you are right, I'm no bird watcher, but I should have noticed that. I'd read in the local paper about the black swan and thought I had seen it at last. Oops!!
Thanks you so much for pointing it out. I really will be more careful in future. I don't know my flowers either and I never name any unless I'm absolutley sure. I shall refrain from naming birds too from now on.
