A cygnet's head is measured during the annual swan census or "Swan Upping" on the River Thames in south-east England, on Monday, July 18, 2011. The historic ceremony dates from the 12th century, when the crown claimed ownership of all mute swans and passes through Middlesex, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
