On day one of our recent holiday, we set off in the late morning to drive to our Herefordshire destination. The weather was rather cloudy with the sun occasionally bursting through. We decided to leave the main road and take the scenic route. When we crossed the narrow stone bridge over the River Stour at Spetisbury, this was the delightful scene that met my eye.
I was trying to remember the word for a gathering of swans. The word gaggle came to mind, but I believe it’s only associated with geese. Anyway this definitely looked like a gathering together of a number of swan families. Don’t they make a great addition to this river landscape?
