Along the River Thames – Part 4

Today it is time for some Swans shots. Mute swans on the river Thames are the property of the Crown.

“Today, the Crown retains the right to ownership of all unmarked mute swans in open water, but The Queen only exercises her ownership on certain stretches of the Thames and its surrounding tributaries.” ~ copied from The Royal Website

Each year there is a census of the Swans. This is known as Swan Upping. Learn more at The Royal Website.

This shot was about to be deleted when I happened to notice the fella or gal on the left and thought it was so funny… so I post it today… even though it isn’t a good shot. HA HA HA!!
