I have been going over to the Fort Brockhurst moat daily to see if the cygnets have hatched and Friday I noticed that there were two cygnets, but the Pen was still sitting on the other five.

On Saturday there were six cygnets all trying their best to keep warm underneath the Pen and one egg still not hatched

Today all six were out on the water under the careful watch of the Cob and Pen, such a sweet sight.

The last egg has been discarded and has been pushed out of the nest apparently this is quite common.
The extra photo is one of the cygnets trying to get back on the nest, seen the size of its feet

Hoping that they all survive

Will keep you posted

Hope you have all had a good weekend...............!
