Ask the Swan Specialist
Date: 24 March 2014
We have had 2 swans on our lake for about 6 weeks but they keep flying to a friends lake about 3 miles away and then coming back.
We have started feeding them to encourage them to nest here.
Today my wife witnessed them mating - a simply wonderful experience I sadly missed.
How many times do they mate before a likely pregnancy?
How long after mating do they begin building their nest?
Do you think they keep switching lakes in order to decide which is safest for a nest?
All very exciting!!!
