Emma and Horatio “Do it” again! Hooray!


On 9th May our resident swans, Emma and Horatio, hatched their second successful clutch of signets. For most of the day Horatio was standing proud guarding the seven eggs as they hatched in the pouring rain. Today, Emma has her wings fully spread keeping the signets warm and dry on her seaweed nest at the top of the slipway. Hopefully in a couple of days we will give an update to the signets first swim.
