These are an attractive member of the Swan family, and i believe a few have escaped and are now breeding in the UK.

You could not have asked them to arrange themselves better.........but in fact I think you waited and waited until you could capture them thus way, Danny; very nicely exposed to capture good detail in the very dark plumage.
