The Geese & the Swan!

Down at the lower lake this week the keepers noticed something strange!
Over the last few weeks we have been watching a pair of Canada Geese build a nest together and have seen them lay several eggs.
This week however we were very surprised to find that it wasn’t either of the geese sat on the eggs incubating them- but a swan!
We are not sure what started this strange partnership and whether we might see a mix of goslings or cygnets but we will keep you updated as the story develops!
We have also spotted another pair of Canada Geese who have successfully hatched their brood and have some very cute goslings!
