The First Egg Laid
Having seen the swans building their nest over the last few weeks, Ali returned this morning to have another look. To her delight, in the rather large nest, the first egg had been laid. According to The Swan Sanctuary website, "After the nest has been built, which typically takes 2-3 weeks, the egg laying process begins with an egg being laid every 12-24 hours. Once all the eggs have been laid, which can take 2-3 weeks, they will all be incubated (ie sat on to start the growth process) at the same time with hatching usually 42 days (6 weeks) later." Egg sighting times ahead!
