|Yes!! My first wave.|
|Let's do it again|
|Quick catch this one you foamer!|
I never would have believed it if I hadn't caught the action on my own Canon 400D. Early this morning I walked into Ouchy to check up on all the hatchlings from the last month or so. And the good news is they are all accounted for and in good shape. And that includes one duck with eleven ducklings. She appears to be doing the child raising by herself as a male of the species was not within 400 metres in any direction. Then again it is a glorious Sunday morning and like most males in Switzerland he may have been out on the golf course with his mates.

This was serious extreme surfing for cygnets and you guys know that I am not prone to exaggeration. They even had a bit of style considering they've only been on the planet for a few weeks. I'm serious, with some coaching and maturity these little guys could match it with the best swan surfers on any lake in Europe.

See some of you dreamers in two weeks. Jo and I look forward to catching up.
And here's a taste of Montreux for those of you who would like to join Jo and I there next July.
