Here we have 20 photos that illustrate the great zest and exuberance that Mute Swans have in Bathing. In this case we are viewing a Sygnet which is a young swan. It is fun to see a wild bird so at home in his environment and the great care they take both bathing and preening and checking their feathers. It is vital that they do this for upon their ability to take to the water as protection from predators their very lives may occasionally depend. It is a pleasure to watch these vigorous activities!
