News from the swan blogger

No this is not a gurn comeback, just a response to interest in how the Nairn swans are getting on. The swan blogger, has been taking pictures but not published any yet. So the above pic is a sneak preview of what is, hopefully, to come. It shows the intruders taking up residence. This is Joe's message.

I may blog those at some time in the for the Swans....those are a new pair in the river.... probably 3 or 4 years old...and this will be their first attempt at nesting ...there will be a 4.2 m tide on the 27th of this month....and providing it does'nt flood the nest ...and providing kids or dogs dont attack her on the nest..then maybe we will see some new cygnets around the 6 th of june..which should be about the 35 day incubation period.
The big problem will be when the resident pair get back from lochloy with their offspring....i hope they can co exist for this may be the first time we will have two lots of Swans and cygnets on the river at the same time !
There should be enough food least during the summertime.....and if they share the territory, 2 up the top area...and the other two towards the harbour and could work out ...if only they could reason like us !!!!
