As of yesterday 27th May 2013 we can confirm that four of the six Swans eggs have hatched. Mid afternoon FWN Reporter Brember Turner texted to let me know that the day we were waiting on had arrived and the young cygnets were under the warm wing of their mother at the pond.
Even better Brem, got some cracking photos for our readers to see them only hours after they were born, remarkable.
Well Done Brem !
Today, I went to the pond early in the morning, after another week of torrential rain in Scotland the weather held off long enough for me to observe the latest ‘news‘ on the Pond.
The Cygnets are looking more like adults than ever and there long slender necks are a site to behold.
The Ducks too are growing at a rapid rate, but its the Coots who stole the show this week. After me thinking there was no chance of any eggs hatching, what did I see on the far side ? Five young babies swimming along with mum and dad.
Take a look at the photos I got below.
