Swan Upping

Some pictures taken today of Swan Uppers passing through Marlow and Temple. This is the annual census of swans on the River Thames - a historic ceremony dating from the 12th century.

I've never seen them before, so I thought I'd go for a look this morning as the weather was so glorious. Most of the local swans had sensibly made themselves scarce.

What is more summertime than spending time in the water.
