During today’s count, the family of Mute Swans that bred across the river from KFB came into the project giving me a chance to take some poor photos of the family. I wanted to do this because one of the cygnets is white rather than the normal dirty grey/brown. This is known as a Polish morph and happens occasionally in Mute Swans and we sometimes get them in Cambridgeshire.
The female is on the left with the "Polish morph" between its two siblings.
The "Polish morph" is second from the left. Here the cygnets are 14/15 weeks old.
