Meeting the new arrival

The Cygnet is looking healthy today on the Widewater with the resident pair.

The water level is quite low at the moment and with little rain recently the salinity will be high. Please put fresh water out for the cygnet in a shallow bowl by the water edge, if you can. This will be very helpful as high salinity can be harmful for Cygnets in the first few weeks. Thank you.

Fingers crossed for the survival of this one
