Will The First Cygnet Hatch Today?


9:56am 15th May 2013

They'll be eager eyes on the nests at Abbotsbury Swannery today (15th May).

Swanherds are expecting the first baby swans of the year to hatch.

Two more nests are due to have new arrivals tomorrow.

According to a 600 year old legend, it's believed the day the first cygnet hatches signals the first day of summer.

Let's hope they're right.
