Mute Swan 089 and Family
Back in February I blogged about a darvic ringed Mute Swan (ringed by Sorby Breck Ringing Group) that had taken up residence at Holmebrook Valley CP in Chesterfield (see post here). At the time I mentioned that he had set up a territory with a female bird. Well, as the title suggests, the pair have been successful, and last week I went down to see the birds with their 3 cygnets.

As well as the swans there was also a pair of Greylag Geese with 4 goslings.
Two species of damselfly were also seen, namely: Blue-tailed and Common Blue Damselflies.
