Second cygnet gone

Quite a stormy day on Loch Long today. Sadly it looks like the second cygnet (see photo below taken on Thursday) has now disappeared. Possibly to a Heron or Crow?

Sunday evening.
Thursday evening.

Until a few days ago there were two cygnets with mum and dad, sadly there now only appears to be the one.

Very sad to hear this.


Could it be that , given the stormy weather, Mom has her babe under a bushel while Papa is out foraging?
