        Our resident swan eggspert Dub Spot told me their little offspring like to swim around in circles one behind each other.
        Like a cygnet ring.

        I’m imagining them wearing parkas, listening to the Small Faces and riding around on scooters.

    Great headline, Bodger.
    Wonder what the swan-gull relationship is like these days given the increased scumbaggery of the latter. Bit of a gull-frenzy on Kevin St. this morning over someone’s discarded chips. I know they’re not threatening a species or anything, so we can’t cull ’em. Awful craters though.

        ‘The trees are in their autumn beauty,
        The woodland paths are dry,
        Under the October twilight the water
        Mirrors a still sky;
        Upon the brimming water among the stones
        Are nine-and-fifty Swans.’

        from The Wild Swans at Coole, William Butler Yeats.

        South Richmond Street and Portobello House on the corner there in front of the lock are both Dublin 2 so if you were being reeeeaaally pedantic, it could be considered D2.

          Really? I did not know that. I presumed that the Portobello block marked the start of D8.

    The paths around there are slick with swan poo. SO MUCH OF IT.
    They appear to poo where they sleep.
    More proof that they’re DICKS.

    Not reported: These are the last images seen by the photographer, whose corpse was found trampled by swan feet beside his camera.

    Through half closed eyes the last one looks like he’s holding a pint of Guinness with his deformed little swan arm
