Nesting Again

Nesting season has started once more.

Penny has begun nesting for the 12th year on the Island, she is now a very experienced mature Swan of at least 17 years.

Duke on the other hand is much younger, but they have bonded well. I watched as the pair of them walked up river the other day,

was hard going, but soon Penny will confine herself to around her Island home for the incubation period.

On the home front, Disco has also begun incubation today, having laid 16 eggs four of which I had to put in the incubator. These will be reunited with Disco and siblings when hatched. Looks like a busy season ahead.
