The adult pair have moved down onto the the three ponds around and including the fishing pond, and at the moment still have one of the cygnets following them around.
The cygnet that had a bad leg/wing finally started to fly this week and today had left the area.
This year has been very good for the new pair, with five cygnets being hatched and only one being predated, it is the best for about ten years. The success could be due to the new parents or the erection of the fence, preventing them roaming between ponds and getting left behind or easy prey to the many predators.
One of which is the heron, photoraphed today on the long pond.
