A wonderful shot * Nick *! Glad to hear that dad is just around the corner.... I looked your question up and learned that a swan can have between 3 and 8 eggs per clutch!

Warm greetings ~ Judy :))

Lady Harley Often the young cygnets get gobbled up by this and that and to have a couple get through to adulthood is often an achievement ~ let us hope this lucky seven are an exception and all survive ~ Thanks for the like ~ Wam wishes ~ nick

Everything in nature is based on losses along the way. Of course I will keep my fingers crossed for these seven but statistics can be a bitch!

Cheers, Erik
