We had a pair that showed up at a lake near our house one year, but I haven't seen them since (probably too much human traffic). They were indeed lovely!
That is so cool! :D Aren't they impressive? You're totally right... They moved on most likely because of the noise factor. There are much more shy than mute swans and require space and solitude (I can relate to that! LOL!)
Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave me a comment! :)
