RARE black swans have been a big hit with local walkers on Crosby Marina during lockdown.
The black swans, which are common in Australia, are a more unusual sight in Sefton and have attracted a lot of attention over the last few months.
Social media users have been posting pictures on Facebook of the birds, and according to some they appear intermittently in the Crosby lake.
One person posted online: “They are fabulous! It's great to see so many swans down there at the moment but first time I've seen the black ones.”
