Lone male mute swan
Date: 8 May 2016


The female swan abandoned the nest and disappear from their territory. I do not what exactly happened, but I guess she was threatened by brutal behaviour of stupid persons when she was incubating. I could not find the body or she injured and just left this place.

The male still stay in the his territory and try to incubate sometimes. He make the round trips everyday in the canal. I try to understand his behaviour if he grieves or looks for new partner or searches for his old partner. They had once failure breeding last year, but before that she was wonderful mother and she always raise more than 7 cygnets reaching adulthood. Sad story...
