Mum, can you pick me up. . .pleeeeeeeease? 🦒

Sound familiar? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ The cygnets are out and about discovering their new home at Moors Lake and we're over the moon to see them doing so well 😍

This is a really important stage in their development when mum and dad are teaching them the skills they need to thrive. If you're lucky enough to spot them on your next visit please be kind and give them space to explore ❀

Have you seen them yet?

We have seen the swans with their lovely babies the last 3 days. But today Mummy swan was on the lake calling for her cygnets and Daddy swan was flying up and down the lake looking for them. It would appear the babies have been taken/eaten so sad 😞 😒

We saw them yesterday, the dad was a bit mean pecking at the ducks we were trying to feed. They had to come out onto the grass eventually. We got some beautiful photos with my granddaughter.

When we saw these beautiful cygnets on Friday there were 7. Just hope these will thrive so we can enjoy seeing them on the lake 🌲🌲

Hi Moors Valley Country Park and Forest, lovely video! I'm a reporter for DorsetLive - could we get your permission to use this video on our social media channels, with credits to you, please? Many thanks
