So my swan couple have got … new chicks. Happened weeks ago, but I haven’t been able to check up on them … or blogging. The photos was taken 10 days ago.
Last year they had 6 chicks, this year 5 … and I’m so thrilled every time I see the chicks for the first time, every year. The swan couple is my private joy.
Something has happen to the male swan, his leg/foot – it have been laying strangely on his back for months now, so it seams like he are swimming with only on foot. Don’t know how he manage on land. Wonder why they haven’t tried to catch him and taken him to the vet. Maybe I should give the Park division a phone call.
A little swan note: in UK the Queen is the protector of all UK’s wild swans – I just love that – so I will be the protector of my swan couple here in Wrangelska Park in Landskrona. Because every swan should have a protector.
P.S. Have now talked to the park division and they are going to send somebody from the animal park over to have a look at the swan and his leg. Should have done that the first time I noticed it. So my work as their protector has started,
“But when the swan departs,
you shall remain behind,
like an abandoned woman.”

“Le Cygne” or “The Swan”, is the 13th and penultimate movement of “The Carnival of the Animals” by Camille Saint-Saëns, 1886 – and it was one of his most popular pieces of music during the span of his life.
A short ballet was made out of this beautiful piece of music, The Dying Swan, was choreographed in 1905 by Mikhail Fokine and performed by Anna Pavlova. Pavlova gave some 4,000 performances of the dance and “swept the world”.
