Scratch that itch


This is a cygnet at Painshill in Surrey. It struck me that a disadvantage these birds have is that when they are scratching themselves under the wing then they have no idea if a predator is sneaking up on them. Perhaps they have no natural predators in the park.  After witnessing a stand-off between my eight year old neice and this bird’s aggrestive mother, my money would be on the (fully grown) swan to win in the event of child/swan hostilities breaking out.
