Swans of Ireland
Laura and I first came across swans in the pond in St. Stephens Park, Dublin. These were the Mute Swans with the characteristic orange beak with black bump on their forehead. There we not only saw swans but their babies, called, cygnets. We loved watching swans later on the rivers. We especially enjoyed watching them fishing the rapid waters before bridges along the Long Walk beside River Corrib In Galway City.
