Swan family, Oxley Marine slipway

Family of swans: two adults and five now well grown cygnets, resting on the slipway of Oxley Marine boatyard near Autherley Junction. Ian Phillips of the Smestow Birders suggests these might be the cygnets which hatched in West Park earlier this year, and later disappeared.

Another swan family with the same number of cygnets are further along the canal, near Newbridge.
