Do the swans on the river Nairn still belong to the queen?
I think so, but have only got wikipedia to back that up:"Today, the Crown (the British monarch) retains the right to ownership of all unmarked mute swans in open water, but the Queen only exercises her ownership on certain stretches of the Thames and its surrounding tributaries."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mute_Swan
ooh thanks for that Graisg, I did think that ownership had perhaps past on. Maybe the Gurn should send the queen a link to the photos as I believe she now has an iPad on which one could view them
Stunning pictures. Hope they all survive.
