Went for a sunday wonder along frozen water ways- in Berlin. The swans and ducks were 'lurking' on the banks and came quite blazenly up to all walking and slipping around. What surprised me was how big those beasts were! I got a little nervous when one came up- I have heard stories of swans breaking peoples legs and now I see how- they are HUGE! Not to mention that frankly evil orange beek and intelligent beedy black eyes. But in saying all that I had to grip my hands tightly onto my bag because I so wanted to stroke the head and neck- it looked so white and soft!
I think some how I prefer them gliding gracefully on the water at a good distance!
