Mum and dad with some of their chicks
Where we going dad?
Two years ago a pair of swans took up residence at the Ponds. For two years they tried to have a family but failed. Last year none of the eggs hatched. Now at their third attempt the pair have hatched five cignets, a further two eggs which were laid late, being deserted.
The seven of them have settled on the Carp Pond where hopefully their combined efforts will help to keep top side of the weed!
