We are delighted to see seven cygnets have hatched by the pond and are lovingly cared for by their parents.
The eggs from the river swans didn’t hatch this year. The pen and cob have been mating again last week and there is a very small chance of more eggs to come.
In 2017 their eggs didn’t hatch either and they fostered a cygnet from another swan family. We will share photographs of the river swans throughout the year and follow the progress of the pond cygnets as they grow older.
Wishing you all a magical Sunday,
with love from Xenia xxx
