Default just swans

hi everyone,
today i went to Dover, Kents famous port town. they have a large park there with a river flowing through it. these are a few pics i got of the swans i saw there. all together they have maybe 30-50 of these swans, young and old. the weather was terrible (as forcast) so i made the most of it with some fill flash and the tripod where possible, before the skies opened on me!

would have gone for more reflection but with an average of 4 or 5 birds every few square meters, meant the water surface was somewhat spoilt.

regards,
john
