It's a wonderful world!

It is fortunate that the nest was built so close to the wooden walkway at Rattray Marsh.

 

Swans usually mate for life, though 'divorce' does sometimes occur, particularly following nesting failure. The number of eggs in each clutch ranges from three to eight.

 

Young swans are known as cygnet, flapper, or swanlings.
