One Year Pond Study: Week 33 – A New Face

Here is our pond this week:


We had an impromptu visit to the pond this week.  Mum and I were driving home from our weekly shopping and we spotted a beautiful swan paddling about in the pond.  She quickly drove us home where we picked up the children and cameras and whizzed back down.  Swans are a rare sight in our pond and we didn’t want to miss it!

What a wonderful treat, although sad that he was on his own.


  1. What a treat! I have never seen a swan in the “wild” – only those placed for show or in farms. You are quite lucky to have a pond with such diversity!

    1. I agree. The different birds seem to show up for a few days or weeks and then off they go again. Where I don’t know. We have a few good sized ponds where we live so maybe they fly from one to another?

  2. I love swans. He reminds me of one of my favorite books, Trumpet of the Swan. I read it aloud to my class every year. We reread it here at home just a year or so ago. Glad he came to make an appearance. God’s creation is amazing!
    Have a lovely week, Claire.
