Swan in the Fens

Masstreehugger photographs the latest addition to the Fens, wonders how he or she will get along with the Canada geese, and adds:

Note in foreground the stripped bark off the trees leaning over the water - courtesy of recent rabbit infestation in the park. They eat bark in order to survive winter, effectively killing the plant although it may resprout from roots. There will be
