happy little family


I've been worrying a lot lately,about this little family living on the banks of the Yarra River.Nestled between the cycle path and the water,they are in an extremely vulnerable situation. Melbourne is home to an awful lot of foxes so I'm keeping my fingers crossed until the big day comes, and the little ones can leave the nest.

X22. A strange banding method but then it is identifiable from a distance. Interesting.

G'day John Lee. Most swans in Melbourne are tagged like this.It seems cruel to me but I guess the parks and wildlife officers wouldn't do it if it caused the birds distress. They were away on an outing when I cycled home yesterday.I hope they made it home safe and sound.
