Several more swans resting on the banks of the Fleet Lagoon in the company of some Coots and at least one Mallard while some Canada Geese are out on the water.
These two cygnets were rather blocking this ramp from the water up to the land.
There were several family groups in pens like this which presumably improves survival of the young. Swans were once very important to society - quill pens were made from their feathers, no swans, no Shakespeare!
As more swans fly in others rest on the bank along with some ducks and geese.
There's swans galore here, two more views of some of them - along with a few interlopers!
The various species seem to get on together - there's one coot in these two photos that seems rather attached to the swan he or she is beside.
This Canada Goose seemed to make hard work of getting from water to land.
This coot looked to be sitting on a nest despite it being late August.
There is a pair of feral Black Swans in amongst the usual white Mute Swans.
A line of Canada Geese making their way past a Coot then some Mute Swans.
Some more Canada Geese flying in.
A group of Mute Swans taking off, in the left view there is a wooden stand in on which a number of Cormorants are resting.
A last view of some Mute Swans in flight.
