This morning we posted a glorious uncaptioned photo of swans making their way towards Canoe Lake, and our readers have not disappointed with their responses.

When this family of swans set out along the road in Southsea this morning, they probably didn’t think they would be the subject of some hilarious Facebook comments.

Here’s some of the best comments from our Facebook page:

ASHLEY MILLS: “Here for the great swan run”

BILL WRIGHT: “This way guys. I told you it was better than Southampton.”

MANDY HOLMES: “Marmite over here guys, follow me.”

STEPH FARNES: “Don’t look now lads, but we’re being followed...”

HELEN C HATTON: “See dear I told you it was just down here on the left.”

KAREN SPRAKE: “Mirror Cygnet Manoeuvre”

RICHARD CHASE: “Stop swanning around.”

KYLE MORRISON: “No luck catching those swans then.” “Err it’s just the one swan actually.”

CAROL DILLEY: “Maybe they are enjoying the cygnet-ure tunes on the car radios.”

LINDSAY CAMBRIDGE: “Let’s see how many people we can annoy on a Monday morning guys.”
