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.
No sign of duck nests or eggs yet, though I have my suspicions that there is something in the pampas grass!
