|Around 3:30pm today Romeo and Juliet took the Cygnets out onto the lake to swim and get a meal.|
The Cygnets stay very close to their mother Juliet as they swim out.
|Here you can see the whole family swimming out into the lake.|
Romeo bringing up the rear, helping to guard the Cygnets.
The Cygnets have bonded to their mother and will stay very close to her until they gain some confidence.

|Juliet with her head underwater pulling up water plants to feed the Cygnets.|
|Both parents are pulling up the water plants and droping them on the surface of the water where the cygnets can easily get them.|
|Juliet is pulling up more plants and you can see the Cygnets are enjoying their meal.|
|The Cygnets are tired and Romeo and Juliet bring them back to the nest where they must climb the slope up to the nest before resting.|
