One Day One World Project: 16:00 to 17:00 hours

Walking down by the River Teme I spotted this Mute swan family in the distance so naturally moved a little closer to get some photos. But not too close! They are very protective of their little ‘uns.

Not an Ugly Duckling


Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day.

If you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world between 16:00 – 17:00 this week.  I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Whenever I see a cygnet I think of the Ugly Duckling song by Danny Kaye which I loved when I was a child. But they are not ugly at all! I suppose they aren’t fluffy yellow chicks, but I think they are very cute and to see three of them (one was hiding) was terrific.

        1. Quite possibly, though the name Uncle Mac doesn’t ring any bells. I do remember ‘Listen with Mother’ followed by ‘Watch with Mother’ when we had a TV. Ah, the Woodentops 😉

  1. Nice fluffy cygnets Jude. I remember Andy Pandy and The Woodentops too, not forgetting Muffin The Mule!
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. Yup! Worth walking across the road for to get a better shot. I was very surprised when the family swam round and came up so close. I suspect they were looking for a feed!

  2. What a lovely activity for that time of day. How nice that the swan family cooperated! And I remember Danny Kaye singing that too… Happy 1 Day 1 World!
