I’m actually excited!

This doesn’t happen often, almost as rare as solar eclipses to be honest.
I was talking to one of the marina staff about the resident swans yesterday, in particular the pair I saw sitting on a nest.

They are sitting on more than the nest as there are four eggs inside.
Last year, there were three cygnets here when we arrived, though I only managed to catch two on camera as they swam by one morning.

If you remember our swans on the large drain in Lincolnshire had to abandon their nest because of flooding. We were gutted.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  2. Well, it may take a lot for you to get excited, but not me – I am already excited to see what hatches, and I’m not even there!
