How Mr Adamson Saved The Swan Eggs!
“She is the unluckiest swan; I needed to make sure they survived. You're not supposed to interfere, but it had got to the point where they were all going to die,” Mr Adamson told BBC.
"I knew I would regret it if I didn't do anything to save them,” he said. So, in the dark, he managed to build a makeshift raft to transfer the entire nest to safety! This included the poor mother swan and her nine eggs.
It’s a pretty amazing feat, considering that the water was rising dangerously high. Hoisting the entire nest, the swan and the eggs onto a floatation device must have been difficult — in the middle of the night, no less! According to Mr Adamson, neither the mother nor father swan attacked him. “I think they knew it was their best chance," he said.
