On my travels, I crossed paths with several cyclists, a dog walker and fishermen. I had the good fortune to meet up with some wild birds; a female swan and her cygnets.

Across the country, lead poisoning in mute swans has declined since the restriction on lead weights was introduced in 1987. However, research has provided evidence of continued lead poisoning in some localities. Swans are protected as native wild birds.
