First black-necked cygnets of the year in Arundel


THESE are the first black-necked swan cygnets to be born in Arundel’s wetland centre this year.

The new arrivals were spotted at the WWT Arundel Wetland Centre, in Mill Lane.

And now spring has arrived, and the days are getting longer, the centre is inviting visitors to stay longer at the reserve tomorrow.

The newly-hatched black-necked swan cygnets are in the centre’s wildfowl collection, and free guided walks are held to watch birds come to roost in the early evening.

Arundel Wetland Centre is open until 6.30pm tomorrow to allow visitors to see nature as twilight falls.

A guided walk to the Lapwing Hide with centre manager Dave Fairlamb begins at 5pm.
