It seems that only one of the nine eggs that the Wapping swans laid on their nest has hatched. Sad news that it is we should all consider ourselves lucky we have these lovely animals in our community and make sure we keep an eye out for them.
Thanks to everyone who has not revealed the location of the nest and also refrained from posting photos of the nest on social media.
Here is the one cygnet we do have this year. Let us hope s/he makes it to fly away in a few months time.
