Penny and Duke have started nesting on this Island anniversary year. Sadly Popeye our previous Cob died last September, he fathered 62 cygnets in the last nine seasons.
Penny his mate was fortunate to have found Duke her new partner, and he looks to be up to the job of following Popeye's legacy.
Today they were working together preparing the nest for the coming season, we just got Duke back earlier this week from a 2 week stay in the SPCA wildlife rescue centre.
Hopefully Penny will provide us with more beautiful cygnets to grace our river this Summer.
