Number Two was walking along a path when suddenly she heard a sob coming from underneath a bush, ‘I..I..I'm lost.'
Number Two peered underneath the bush and caught sight of a big grey chick.
‘Who's your mummy?' Number Two asked the baby bird.
‘My mummy's the biggest, most beautiful bird. She looks like you,' the chick cheeped.
‘Don't cry; we'll find her,' Number Two replied.
She put the baby bird on her tail, and they went to look for its mummy.
Soon Number Two caught sight of a huge bird sitting in a field.
‘Have you lost a baby, big bird?' Number Two asked politely.
‘I'm not a bird; I'm an aeroplane. Aeroplanes don't have babies,' the aeroplane replied.
‘Cheep cheep, that's not my mummy. My mummy looks like you,' the baby bird declared.
All of a sudden, Number Two saw a white bird with a neck as long as hers, swooping down from the sky.
‘My baby swan, I've been looking for you everywhere!' the bird cried .
‘Mummy, this is Number Two. She's been looking after me , ' the chick chirped.
‘Thanks for your help Number Two . You're very kind, and look just like a swan.'
