The Swan parents are turning up the heat on the cygnets, but still not serious about getting them out of the river...yet ! The incomer has now been in the river for 5 days but not so intimidated that he stays away. I watched today as the cob flexed his wings, and some of the Cygnets had a bonding session. I think it was Lefty who was the star attraction, and even went up to the nest site for maybe a last look around. It crossed my mind that maybe somewhere in it's genes/DNA, it was embedding a reference point for the future....who knows ?
