Barren River

With so many winter spates, the river is bereft of precious Algae at this time of year.

The winter sun has been in short supply, which has not helped the situation. Penny is now entering the pre nesting stage, and always on the lookout for Algae in order to help with the production of eggs.

Although both swans are in excellent health, she needs the natural minerals and Algae to produce a good hatch in the coming months.

 Sunshine and low water conditions should help the photosynthesis grow the Algae on the river bottom.
