Sleepy cygnets

All was quiet down in the harbour this morning and the mute swan family were taking advantage of the tranquillity and resting in the seaweed on the shore.

All five cygnets were huddled together sleeping as the parents dozed nearby, but alert to any danger that might threaten their youngsters.

After several minutes a cygnet stirred, waking it’s siblings and setting off a chain reaction of stretching and yawning before they all settled down once again

A few photos captured, I left the family to  enjoy their afternoon nap in peace.
