This lovely photo of a family of swans was sent in by Judy De Haan.

Judy said: "What a wonderful surprise to see this tiny family of baby swans (too young to be called cygnets) on the grass nearby to the lake in Kelsey Park.

"The mother is keeping her babes close whilst Daddy Swan stands guard. The only other water birds nearby were a pair of Mandarin Ducks strutting their stuff."
