I went back 5 years in the archives for this picture of two cygnets and even after so many years I can still remember their antics.

There were four of them all together out for a walk with their mum and dad. Every time they took a couple of steps, one of them flopped down and wouldn’t budge. Although it was a different cygnet each time, the whole family would stop until they were all upstanding again. It took them ages to waddle a few yards along the path to the pond at the rate of left-right-flop, left-right-flop. Synchronised toddling!
