Mr & Mrs Coot were proudly showing off thier new babies on Tunstall Park lake today.
Dad Coot was bravely taking bread from passing long legs and feeding it onto his family as Mum was keeping a close eye on the eight babies whilst also diving down to the bottom for further food.
The chicks should hopefully be given more shelter from preditors and humans as it looks like they are sticking close to the island on Tunstall Park lake.
More good news for the Tunstall Park is that Mummy swan isn't leaving the island as she's sitting on a clutch of eggs.
So let's make it more fun... how many signets will hatch? I'm going for 5
Congratulations to all proud parents.
