New life on the Creek

This pair of Canada geese have two goslings. Look out for them at the Ha'Penny Hatch.

These swans have built a nest on a precarious floating garden next to the Theatre Arm boats. They have three eggs and the boaters are worried the eggs may not survive. If they do, you'll soon be able to see the cygnets trying out the water from the Ha'Penny Hatch bridge.


  1. These may well be the swans that used to nest on the floating pontoon at the westerly end of the dockyard jetty. 3 years ago they successfully raised 7 cygnets.

  2. Oh yes, wondered if it was the very same!

  3. Great to see the first hatchlings!
