The Uppers wait to enter Penton Hook Look
The boat with the Queen's Swan Master
Vintner's Royalty in white, their master in a blazer
he Sovereign’s Swan Marker David Barber
A swan with 3 cygnets are under the railway bridge
We waved to bring the Queens Swan Warden over
and then the swan uppers approach
bringing their boats around to encircle the swans - including a stray one at left
The boats from a tight line with no clear water so the swan can't escape
