Mother swan takes babies under her wing for trip across the pond.
The mute swan and her fluffy cargo were caught on camera by Richard Meston on a visit to Bicton Park Botanical Gardens near
Mr Meston, 32, said: ‘The cygnets had been splashing in the water around their mum. They looked like they
were starting to get tired and one by one started to scramble up on their mum’s back. She didn’t mind at all and even gave them a
nudge up.’ source
