Cygnets vanishing
Date: 24 July 2015

Hi I have been enjoying watching a family of two adult and 5 cygnets near my partners boat in Kent. It has been lovely seeing the babies growing and the bond they all seemed to have. Sadly last night there was only one baby left. In a matter of four days four of the cygnets have vanished. I don't know exactly how old they are but they weren't tiny but still had the grey feathers though I think they were starting to turn whiter. This has been playing on my mind today as it was really sad to see them with only one baby left. What do you think was the most likely to have happened to them. It seems unusual for 4 of them to vanish in such a short time
