Creek Clean up reminder

The fecund Creek is in full breeding mode, and is now home to a family of swans with eight cygnets, and a couple of families of geese with goslings...

Perhaps you can spot them tomorrow if you go down to help with the Creek Clean Up (10.30am–1.30pm - meet at Creekside Centre). This is part of a focused volunteer effort to clean up and remove Himalayan Balsam and litter from the Ravensbourne River system. More info on 'The 3 Rivers Clean-up' here.

  1. There were only 7 cygnets this afternoon. Oddly, the day before yesterday there were 5 Canada Goose goslings and one cygnet without a swan in sight. It really looked like they were reenacting the ugly duckling. One of those cygnets is a pretty independent critter.
