Montage: Shapes of Swans Out of Water


When swans glide down the Tweed, one forgets the other shapes they can twist themselves into when out of the water.  These swans were on the Tweedmouth side of the estuary, where they sit around on the exposed bank with big ducks and the occasional goose. These  birds are tamer in their behaviour than when they are further down the Tweed, being used to people on the bank, and being fed at times.  Children run around squealing amongst the ducks which come up on to the grass by the arches of the big bridge. There used to be a black swan amongst the white swans, but I haven’t seen it for a long time.
