Five New Fluffy Arrivals

Recently, we've had five new arrivals in the marina.

We have been watching the female swan sit on her nest for the last couple weeks and finally her five, fluffy, small cygnets have hatched. We witnessed them take their first swim today with their mum and dad and all went well. They swam around the marina for a bit then headed back to their nest for a rest. These two swans have had a good history with keeping their previous cygnets safe. The biggest issue for them in the marina are rats eating their eggs, which is now no longer a problem, and foxes. Last year, the marina staff put a mesh fence around her nesting area so no fox could get in there without getting into the water. This worked very well last year so I hope they try to do something similar this year.
