These ugly ducklings will turn out beautiful eventually!

One of the advantages of being fair weather boaters who don´t fancy tootling down the canal in cold and rain,, is that we’ve got some great friends around us.
We also have some “regulars” who pop by (of the non human kind), which means we can follow the progress of the local wildlife’s offspring. For example, Mary and Rex paid a visit this afternoon with their three little swanlets, every time we see them they’ve grown a bit more.
I suspect they’re going through the “ugly duckling” stage right now, still cute, but looking a bit more prickly than fluffy…
