      1. Wow!!!! And I thought having two children was a challenge. πŸ˜‰ Wonderful to be able to watch her through the years. How many years is that?

        1. Thank you Laurie and yes, it is quite a feat! She has had 62 cygnets over nine years with her previous cob (who sadly passed away) and this is the eighth year we see her on the nest in the river. She has found a new cob and they make a lovely pair. Fingers crossed they will be able to raise a family together β˜ΊπŸ’–πŸ€ xxx
