Janice and I took a look around in the afternoon at a couple of places in the Whitby area. After 3 hours we were giving up when I saw the cygnats by the boardwalk.
Away we went to see them. On arrival we were fortunate to see a juv common tern and both adults. The male sat on the handrail preening himself and the female was diving for food for the younster. Then the swans arrived both adults and 3 young cygnats. They made a sneezy sort of sound as they dipped in the water for food.

Check out Janice blog for a more detailed outline of this day. She is a story teller and her photos are amazing. Enjoy.
