On 13.07.2012 after reading in news that the Swan couple in Aulanko Pond, Finland had given birth to a Cygnet for the second time in history, we decided to go and see if we’d be lucky to get a glimpse of the new member in Swan family!
When we reached the Pond, the sky was cloudy and we could not see the Swans.
But slowly the clouds started withdrawing and sky became clear.
From distance, we could see one swan sitting on the curb of pathway.
The Swan was evidently unaffected by our presence!
We decided to go to other side of the pond to see see if we could find the cygnet there.
We were about to give up, when the Cygnet appeared on the other side and we rushed back there to film it.
The baby swan can be seen mostly tagging along his mother.
The beautiful Swan family in a beautiful blue heart.
Swans and their cygnet + Ducks and Seagulls
In the video you can see the Swan trying to prevent the Duck from entering the pond, and a tag game between a golden eyed Duck and a Mallard. If you are only interested to see the baby swan, you may forward the first 6-7 minutes of the video. Filmed on 13.07.2012
