Our cygnet story
« on: October 29, 2008, 05:43:04 am »
I do not know, is it right place to post this here, but if somebody is interested, there is the first part of our cygnet story on our State television.

This is the nature program, and the 2nd episode, about our swans is from time 8:25. First two minutes is about the place where cygnets were found and kept at the beginning, and then their yourney to us. At the end, time 13 sometning you can see Peter riding Shella for few seconds and at the end when cygnets are put in the new pen in our garden, there is Grace, our rescue St. Bernard, looking at cygnets. So if you would like like to watch, it is here

Scroll the recording from left to right to time 8:25, and there is our episode.
At least then you will know that we are real 
(next 2 weeks will be furher episodes of the cygnet story, and how they were released in wildlife in September)

:D Yes, I'm that lady who takes one cygnet out in hands, my mum is lady with gray hair in pink t-shirt, carrying the box, and I'm that lady, standing at the cygnet cage outside on the left side. Lil blonde girl is my niece Sonora.

Me? :D :D For the first time I was on TV when I was 5 yo... It's easy if you like such activities, but see - I don't. So I'm not famous.
When there is a reason to talk about animals, about rescue, then I'm ready to appear and talk - on magazines or TV - if somebody will follow just because they will get silly idea that rescuing is a posh thing - great, at least somebody from shelter will get a home.

But other than that I'm a homesitting bookworm - that is what I like the best :D Reading and writing.

And to whom who is interested - part 2

One was found dead, and other 3 went away - so now ornitologists are waiting news from Germany or Poland where they are supposed to stay for the winter.

I had been promised get info as well on MY swans - and ornitologists had booked our place for the next summer if there will be new orphans :)

And one youngster is sitting in my barn at present - minor injuries, will be released soon. Swans are such a great pets, really. If next week there will be a Mute swan cygnet orphaned, i will probably consider bout raising it for myself (ornitologists are not interested in Mute Swans, they are common, like weeds :) )
