Courtship time in the valley
11 February 2018
As spring approaches the wildlife in the valley starts to think about reproducing. A couple of female Mute Swans were minding their own business on one of the pools when in flew a male with other ideas. He began his very impressive courtship display as he chased one of them around the pool but she was having none of it and took to the air. Undeterred, he turned his attention to the other one but she took to the air as well leaving him somewhat deflated. Oh well, win some, loose some. It’s early in the season yet.
