New arrivals

- posted by Rosey Pounsett

The start of spring brings new arrivals to the lake, and so far we have welcomed a clutch of 5 baby Black Duck and more recently a cygnet. We have been fortunate in having a pair of Black Swans nest at the lake each year over the past several years. This year is no exception, although there appears to be only one cygnet this year compared to 8 in years gone by. There are not too many places where you can sit quietly and watch swans build their nest and then sit for weeks on the eggs, and finally see the young emerge from under the parent and start following them around the lake. What a wonderful place out Lake McIntyre is!
