Whilst walking up to the bottom pond I was relieved to see the female swan swimming on the water with the male. Unfortunately there are no cygnets. This has been their first year and I think they are young swans.
She tried so hard to hatch the eggs but did not succeed. I noticed sitting on the island, by the nest, a grey Heron.
I do know that when Spotty and I walk to town via the canal there is a family of swans which we are able to see and enjoy.
