Spring on the canal at Templars Firs

2019 05 01 11.52.51 swans and weed cutter 90x

On Mayday vounteers of  the Royal Wootton Bassett work party took the weed cutting boat out for the first time this spring. The canal needs regular attention otherwise waterweed grows too much. The nesting swans with their eggs were a bit apprehensive but they get used to the boat going up and down. However the next day ....

 the eggs hatched and the cygnets took to the water......
