This observation is more about behavior than species.
This I'm pretty sure male swan was reaching well up into the Harakeke and giving the branches a good shake.
Then the pair with a young cygnet were eating the seeds off the water.
This is not the first time I have seen this.

Lots of wild seedlings! there were two large adults in different places, one growing in amoungst another species of vine and appears to have possibly arrived with it by accident!? and the other a smaller adult about 20m away coming out from under an old estatablished chocolate vine on a fence, it definitely looks wild and probably is a progeny of the other adult. :o there are also about half a dozen smaller adults also flowering. the botanic gardens plant lady didn't know what it is and said they didn't plant it! adult pics attached.
