I feel sick to the stomach and HOW can some EVIL ******* do something like this. Every year the two swans on Ackers Pit (Stockton Heath) mate, lay eggs and look after their signets for months until the time comes for them to go off on their merry way. It it lovely to see and everyone who goes there takes great care in making sure the swans are not disturbed, are happy, safe and cared for. This year is no different....... their eggs were laid, they looked after them and they would have been hatching very soon. AND THEN THIS HAPPENS !!!!! ONE OF THE SWANS AND ALL 7 EGGS HAVE SUDDENLY GONE !!!! Apparently both adult swans and all the eggs were there at 8.30pm last night as a resident walked past and saw them.... All that remains no is one solitary rather sad looking swan, whether it is the male or female is not know at the moment, and a completely empty nest. Also various metal signs have been ripped down and have vanished too since yesterday. The completely EMPTY nest taken at 7pm tonight The only remaining swan on Ackers Pit now (taken 7pm tonight) and then going to sleep in what is probably the safest place...
