Swan update

New swan couple

Last month we reported the sad story of a female swan at Paper Mill in Redditch, who had died and left her partner all alone at the start of the mating season.

Local amateur photographer Paul Wilde, who visits the ponds on his daily walks, now has some good news:

“The solitary cob, who had been swimming around looking a bit subdued, seems to have met someone new.

“Hopefully it is the start of a pairing, although I’m not sure whether there is time for them to build a nest and have a brood this year,” added Paul, who took the picture of the new couple above.
