Great picture,Les! They certainly know what they will and will not do. We used to have Trumpeter swans near where we live, They used to take their young across the road at times...we just had to wait until they all went by before continuing on our way.

One day last week, I had to stop traffic on the road bridge over the canal in Leigh. A swan had decided it was a good place to land. I finally got it onto the canal under the bridge. It must have got its bearings wrong, as it was another couples territory. It didn't head back to the road though. Guess what? No camera with me. Sacrilidge.
