On the edge of The Fleet you find Abbotsbury Swannery.
It was established by the abbey as a food source - "Oh no! Not swan again!" (I found this figure rather creepy)
And yes, there are lots of swans.
This swan is being lazy - it's not injured.
It's not all swans, there are plenty of coots and ducks about.
It must have been rather a bizarre visit.
I'd have loved to buy postcards of these pictures, but they didn't have them of course. Why do places never have postcards of what I want?
I also enjoyed the landscaping...
...however, I think Sarah and the girls liked the tractor ride best! :-)
