The swans are the mascots of the whole village. The old pair divorced and moved out some time in 2019, so last autumn they got a new breeding pair with two juveniles. They have shelter on a little island and get fed and I must say, they are remarkably relaxed for swans, especially since the pond has been busier than I’ve ever seen it. Can’t wait for Covid to be over and people going elsewhere again.
How beautiful. Our swans have an indoor enclosure with a pond during the winter and the park pond isn’t the same without them. A nearby city does the same and every spring they parade the swans back to the water, accompanied by a bagpiper. It’s one of the rites of spring around here.
