Like ducks (or coots, or geese or swans) to water…

The good weather at the weekend saw lots of this year’s baby birds take to the water for their first swims.

This pair of mute swans only have a solitary cygnet, but they're giving it their full love and attention :)

Funnily enough, there weren’t actually any ducklings about!

All these photos were taken from the Lon Las Cefni, close to the point where it joins the path that comes from the small Cors Ddyga car park near Pentre Berw. Both paths have recently been upgraded and it is possible to park at Cors Ddyga and get up to the Lon Las Cefni with a wheelchair (as long as there is somebody to help with the gates – they’re wide, but not easy to manage). The car park is signposted from the A5 just past Pentre Berw, heading towards Llangefni. The approximate grid reference is SH4617772627.

This is the sign at the (very small) parking area, showing the footpaths (and where German bombs fell during WWII!)
