Many of you have read previous posts about the “Bride and Groom Swans” who visit us from time to time.

If you’re new here, this link will explain how the pair got their names.

Although we’ve continued to see Groom Swan occasionally, it’s probably been a year or so since we had seen Bride Swan. I was almost convinced that maybe she had been injured or become ill and passed on to bluer water.

Then last week, I happened to spot her, and I grabbed my camera and some bread. I think she was happy to see me; I was certainly relieved to see her.

A few days later, just after sunrise, she visited again, and was joined, this time, by Groom Swan.

Bride Swan was looking especially lovely with the golden light of the sunrise shining on her feathers.

“Reunited, and it feels so good.”
