Commencing in the spring of 2010 I began to photograph the development of a family of swans who live on Connaught Water in Epping Forest. What started out as an add-hoc collection of photographs turned into a project that documented the swans and the other wild birds on a weekly basis and continued through the winter.
The project continued through 2011 and beyond.
I am hoping that this blog will attract contributions from other regular visitors to Connaught Water.
To see the photographs from last year click on the Swan Summer 2010 link above.
Call me an optimist but despite today being the first time that we’ve seen ice on the lake and despite the re-introduction to the problems of operating a camera with gloves on, there was something in the light today that gave a hint that spring might not be too far away.
