Swanwatch (4)

Mr and Mrs Swan of The Millpond, Grantchester proudly announce the arrival of an as yet unidentified number of small, fluffy cygnets, hatched around 23rd May 2011. Mother and babies appear to be doing well. Further bulletins will be issued in the coming weeks. In the meantime the family have this fine view from their nest site.

Take care.


  1. One word, John. Awwww!!! That's what was said by my two daughters when I read the "birth" announcement to them!

  2. They certainly chose a good view!

  3. That's a beautiful view for the swans to look at. I visited Cresswell Crags earlier this week and there were a pair of swans with 5 or 6 cygnets on the lake shore, the closest I've ever been to cygnets.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll try to answer any questions via a comment or e-mail within the next day or two (no hard questions, please!).
