Black Swan
Cygnus atratas )

Nesting, Headley Millpond NE Hampshire
7th November 2006


20th April 2007

A second nesting attempt in the same spot produced three cygnets but one was caught in the concentrated flow
that feeds the mill, and washed over the sluice gate early on. The pair and two remaining cygnets have apparently
spent a lot of time up river since then and have often not been visible as the river runs through private land.

Below photographes taken 20th April 2007.







Apparently only one of the original three cygets has servived.
