In recent days the five Wapping cygnets have started learning to fly. Every day for the last few weeks our
crack only Love Wapping camera crew has been aimlessly patrolling up and down the canal hoping to see some flight action.
This morning our dedicated volunteers, all of them, were rewarded by two bursts of flying activity.
The above shots are a combination of photos from a one second burst of flying (after a two hour wait) and then another whole six seconds of flying a little later.
The flying lessons are brief and explosive and quite messy – but wonderful to watch.
