So He Went With a Quack!

Whilst in Marlow visiting previously mentioned mum, I forget to tell you about a few little confidential chats I had….

First there was Cecilia….

"There's someone new in town and I'm not sure if he is one of us or not!" whispered Cecilia conspiratorially!

“There’s someone new in town and I’m not sure if he is one of us or not!” whispered Cecilia conspiratorially!

Who was she talking about?

Then Sandy Orangetop sidled up to me…

"I'm the only one who's a bit different round 'ere....what's his game?" snarled Sandy making me a little concerned about his behaviour!

“I’m the only one who’s a bit different round here….what’s his game?” snarled Sandy in a most pompous way!

Something was ruffling feathers I could tell!

Then Greta came up and appeared most confused…

"It looks very like the other swans but there's something about it....I don't know what it is? It just seems a bit different! What should we do-what should we do?" gabbled Greta in a breathless sort of way!

“He looks very like the other swans but there’s something about him….I don’t know what it is? He just seems a bit different! What should we do-what should we do?” gabbled Greta in a breathless sort of way!

And then I saw him…..

"I'm a little lost!" said Seaton

“I’m a little lost!” said Seaton

And rather like yesterday’s Robin, he looked this way

and that…..

"Oh dear oh dear!" said Seaton! "I had my tail feathers blow dried especially for today and still no one will talk to me!"

“Oh dear oh dear!” said Seaton! “I had my tail feathers blow dried especially for today and still no one will talk to me!”

What a beautiful black swan!

Oh happy day for me!

Seaton was very lonely until good old Gunther Gull got everyone’s attention ….

"Birds of the River!" shouted Gunther, "Seaton is no different to the rest of you! I'm ashamed that you won't speak to him...for goodness sake, sort yourselves out, remember your manners and ask him if he wants to play 'Duck and Dive' with you!"

“Birds of the River!” shouted Gunther, “Seaton is no different to the rest of you! I’m ashamed that you won’t speak to him…for goodness sake, sort yourselves out, remember your manners and ask him if he wants to play ‘Duck and Dive’ with you!”

Fortunately this is what happened…..

Thank goodness for common sense amongst the River Birds of Marlow!

One last thing- this isn’t a very good picture, but I had to take it fast….

"I'm so happy playing Duck and Dive!" said Seaton!

“I’m so happy playing Duck and Dive!” said Seaton!

I had no idea he had any white bits on him at all!

Isn’t he beautiful!

That’s All!

See Ya xx

  1. Loved how you played around with ‘The Ugly Duckling’ concept. Brilliant.:) I remember seeing my first black swan when I was little. My parents took me for a day trip to Chartwell (Winston Churchill’s home). 🙂

Go on.....say something to me! You know you want to! Dot knows you want to too!
