Swans update

Swans updateLooking back, I see I've not said too much about the swans recently. So much else has been happening.

Mildred has been sitting on her nest for quite a while now, which is why work on Lady Jane's bow has stopped.

The picture shows Mildred off the nest, dragging seaweed back to the floating platform her nest is on.

I think this is a sign that her eggs may hatch soon.

It's rare to see Mildred off her nest, so it gives me an opportunity to see that her eggs are all still intact.

This year she has five eggs, compared to last years eight.

Hopefully Mildred will have more success with her cygnets than the poor old duck had with her ducklings.
