Actually, looking very carefully, and with full consideration of the finer points of the anatomy of Cygnus olor, I am of the impression that this is Mum! Nevertheless, it is a fine capture deserving my fulsome praise!

Sincerely yours, Mr. B. Oddie

I'm tempted to stay mute on this subject ~ but with the twitch of an eyebrow I'd be telling a Whooper if I didn't rise to the challenge ~ Even coming from Berwick ~ I find it difficult to identify male and female Cygnus cygnus ~ cordially yours Tim Brooke Taylor

Hi Nick,

What a really clear and interesting capture, which I like very much. In the interests of diversity and political correctness, I will refrain from making any comments as to the gender or dress of this swan!

Best Wishes Peter

Steve Drury, ~ What a drag Steve ~ I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to respond to your useful suggestion ~ I thought that I had, but plainly I hadn't ~ Mum's the word ~ All the best ~ nick

Peterprivatebox You may stick a feather in your cap for tactfully avoiding the ongoing issue :~)))

All the best ~ nick
