Last Year’s Cygnets

In November we visited Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy again.
At least three of the cygnets were almost fully grown:-

This Year’s Cygnets

I was in Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy last month and the swans have seven cygnets this year.

This Year’s Brood

After our move to pastures new on April 4th the good lady and I finally made it back for a look at Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy on June 1st.

The swans look to have four cygnets this year. (They may have had more and lost some but it was almost two months since we’d been at the park so wouldn’t know about that.)

Two Herons

Two herons at the edge of the island in the pond of Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy. I’ve only ever seen one of them at the one time before.

There were curlews in the park too. They’re not there as often as oystercatchers, though. There must be a lot of food for them. Taken from distance to avoid disturbing them.

More Autumn in the Park

Looking uphill. Almost no part of the path through the park was uncovered by leaves here.

More of the swans. Leaves well on the turn behind:-

Autumnal Swans

In Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy, 20/10/13. Trees beginning to turn, leaves afall.

For a few weeks now I’ve only seen three of the surviving five cygnets. Perhaps the other two matured early and flew (or were driven) off.

Heron in Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy (i)

We saw a heron in the park a week or so ago but had no camera on us at the time. It wasn’t there the last time we went round but today….

I took this from across the pond in case it took off.

No worries. This was taken from the boating jetty. Much closer view.

Cygnets Again

(Not to mention several ducks.) In Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy, 22/7/2013.

We hadn’t seen all five cygnets the previous twice we’d been to the park before I took this photo so were pleased to see there wasn’t one missing this time.

They’re showing some adult plumage now.
