Around here black swans are nearly always loners. There was one on the river at Twickenham for ages, and then we had one for a while at Walton Bridge. I found this one at Black Pond in Esher Common. Maybe he could read? Black swans are not native to the UK, the vast majority of our native swans are white mute swans, but in winter we get visitors of Whooper Swans from Iceland, Scandinavia and Russia. Black swans originate from Australia, but they have been introduced as ornamental water-birds here. Some have obviously escaped and tend to live with white swans, but I wonder are they lonely?
Thank you to Cee Neuner for this challenge 🙂
