Carlton Marsh

We haven't had much luck with Mute Swans over the years, several attempts have failed for one reason or another. There have only been 2 successful pairs in more than 40 years, the first in 1985 followed by another in 2012. However, both cygnets died in the very wet spring of that year. Our latest resident pair showed no interest what so ever last year, but I am over the moon that they have produced 5 cygnets today! (Rod Heeley)

Thanks Ange, I just hope they will be ok after the deluge of this evening. This might be a case of de ja vu like in 2012
