Rozelle Swan

Late afternoon yesterday, we went for a walk round the pond in Rozelle Estate ; a not too strenuous walk from our front door. Luckily a significant part of this remnant of the original estate has been left with minimal human interference.

Linking to yesterday's post, what caught my eye was this 'headless' swan. It was not, of course, headless - merely feeding off the bottom of the pond. What really struck me though, was the length of time the bird kept its head under the surface. I didn't know a swan could hold breath for that long.
