Swan Nest And Eggs Abandoned

For nine weeks the swans sat on their eggs, hatching should have taken place after just six, and yesterday they flew off leaving their nest and eggs behind. A very disappointing day for the students and staff that have been waiting for the eggs to hatch and the eagerly awaited arrival of cygnets. 

Overnight one of the four eggs has disappeared and the beautifully constructed nest has already started to collapse, now occupied by the mallards. 

Hopefully the swans will return to the lake and try again next year as it caused great excitement here at the college.
