Deja-vu – where has she been? A question we have been asking ourselves for the past few weeks.

Last year “our“ swan gave pleasure to many whilst nesting on the Island, on The Waits side, producing a family of 8 cygnets, all of which eventually reached adulthood being a remarkable achievement. Well, she was clearly hiding nearby – maybe in isolation -- and in the last few days (article written May 10th) she proudly presented another batch of 8 cygnets to her admirers at The Waits.

We wish them all well and let us hope they are as successful as last year, and learn to practice social distancing!!
