First day of the New Year
I walked down the seafront to Hove Lagoon this morning. As well as the ubiquitous and noisy herring gulls and black-headed gulls on the water, there was a large group of swans and cygnets by the edge of the small lagoon. Swans looks so graceful in the water, but on land they're cumbersome creatures and rather grumpy, squabbling fiercely over morsels of food.
