MY TAME ROBIN. LYNNE.

A Jenny Wren has decided to nest by our kitchen door, inches from our head when we come and go. Other than last year one would nest in the same place every year. The previous year a Squirrel or Magpie pulled the nest apart after the Chicks had left the nest. Last year a Robin attempted to nest in the place but left the nest before the eggs had hatched. Probably we disturbed the Robin going in and out. I will try to find the time to fix a camera to show the nest.

Our three Black Swan Cygnets were delivered this afternoon, but after talking to the person who looks after the Birds at Cricket St Thomas who came with them we sent them back. I didn’t realise that the Cygnets needed to be on the Lake within a few days or they may have started to have problems. We would not try to put them on the Lake until the Geese and Goslings have left, as I am sure that the Geese will attack the Cygnets if we introduced them. Our intention was to house them in one of the Stables and after letting them get use to the noise and surroundings we would have let them out to walk around the Farm Yard until the Geese had left. By all accounts that is not a good idea as they need to have some period in the water or they may get leg problems with their weight be constantly on their legs. Once the Geese have left the Lake the Cygnets will be returning.
