Hi Gina

Usually, the cygnets can begin flying around 6+ months of age, so if they are flying, they are much older than you think. If they are younger and cannot fly, then their walking from pond to pond without the parents is extremely dangerous as predators can easily attack them. Hopefully, this is not the case and you will find them in the surrounding area. They may have just gotten lost and can't find their way back. Swans can cover a large amount of territory walking or flying, so you may have to search a larger area than you think. Please let us know how this progresses. The Regal Swan
