Swans in Ballyduff

When this swan nested in Ballyduff, my friend, Bridget O’Connor, kept a close eye (from a distance) on developments. In time the proud Mammy Swan hatched out a family of lovely cygnets. Bridget caught a series of snaps as Mammy Swan rose from her nest for a brief stretch. She captioned one of these photos “Winging it” and The Irish Examiner printed it in their Readers Photos section.

The swan and cygnets became such a popular attraction in Ballyduff that local people began calling her Kate Middleton, so many people were anxious to see her babies.
