Mute Swan sitting on a clutch of eggs in the nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swans lay on average six eggs per clutch, but can lay as many as twelve. Only one egg can be produced at a time, with an egg being laid every 12-24 hours by the female. When the clutch is complete, all the eggs will be incubated (sat on) together, with the hatchlings usually emerging 35-42 days later. That allows for the eggs to all hatch at the same time. When the eggs are first laid they have a bluish-grey hue, but later turn more of an olive colour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The pair of swans I photographed had six eggs in their nest. Swipe left to see the full clutch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #muteswan #muteswans #swan #swans #swanegg #swaneggs #swannest #swansnest #swansnesting #nestingswan #nestingswans #nestingbirds #birdsnesting #birdsnest #nesting #nest #nests #motherswan #swansoninstagram #instaswan #swanwatch #bird #birds #birding #birdphotography #waterbirds #wildlife #britishwildlife #nativewildlife #rspb_love_nature
