in 2012 when Dawn had a Successful brood of 6 and she was only 2 
years old.
Baby Cygnets hitch a ride on Dawn's back , there was plenty of room
but they all want to get at the front as that was the best view.
One of this Years Cygnets arrived at the Mute Swan Meeting 
this Week
An Adult Male Takes off he's flew from one end of the 
canal to the other end where I was standing. Well half the group flew 
over to me.
Here is a Photo of me Rescuing a Juvenile Female 
she got attacked by 2 local swans and I had to pull 
her out as she was tried and confused. RSPCA officer came later in the 
day and collected her and took to the local rescue Center.

The Swan Whisperer of Middlewich

The Swan Whisperer of Middlewich

A MIDDLEWICH wildlife enthusiast, who hopes to become the next Richard Attenborough, says bonding with the animals is the key to a good photo.
 
As any photographer knows, getting a subject to relax is no easy task but Ryan Mottram has no such issue coming face to face with his swans.
 
Ryan, of Chester Road, has spent every day for the past four years building a rapport with his best swan friends- Flash and his newly found mate, Snow.
'We are friends for life'
 
“We are friends for life,” Ryan said. “Every time they see me they call out and I call back to them with my contact call. I can put my face really close to theirs and it’s fine because we’ve bonded and they know me.
 
“Flash and Snow will always live here, this is their patch. As for the other 50 swans, it’s really unusual because at this time of year they should have already left.”
 
Known around Middlewich as the ‘swan whisperer’, Ryan has even been given the opportunity to meet John Bishop’s swans.
 
Ryan added: “I met John’s wife Melanie at the canal and ended up going to her house to see the swans in their pond when I turned around to see John Bishop standing behind me!
"It was really nice to chat to him about day-to-day things, we have a lot in common."
 
Ryan, 20, often joins his brother Mike who inspired him to become a wildlife photographer and both spend all their free time filming and taking pictures of whatever they can find.
 
Ryan explained: “We spend most of our time in Middlewich at the woodland, river and canal or in Wales where we go to see the swans there.”
 
Out of all the wildlife the brothers have discovered over the years, the most unusual is when they saw a flamingo in the canal.
 
Ryan has also spent time shadowing and helping renowned BBC wildlife filmer and photographer Dave Culley build his tawny owl tower at Sparrowhawk island.

“It was great, Ryan said. “I was really lucky as it came about from me sending him a tweet. I learnt a lot and he is a real inspiration.”
