Adding a little colour at Derryhirk pond

Derryhirk man David Moore has a pair of black swans nesting on an island on his garden pond.

He’s had the swans for several years. He bought them in from England. And while they are rare in this hemisphere they originate from Australia and can be very protective of their young, as our photographer found out.
