Swan Cam Now Live at The Bishop’s Palace
If you’re stuck at home and looking for something to lift your spirits, The Bishop’s Palace in Wells has got just the thing to cheer you up.
Their extremely popular Swan Cam has just gone live. With infra-red capability, the Swan Cam runs 24 hours a day and is trained on the nest made by Grace and Gabriel, the Palace Swans.
Grace has now laid 8 eggs in her nest and is settling down to incubate them over the next few weeks. The incubation period usually lasts for around 5 weeks and fans of Swan Cam compete to be the first to spot a cygnet emerging each year.
Lucky, last year’s cygnet is still on the moat, but is getting more independent day by day. Dad, Gabriel, has become rather more insistent with his encouragement to leave the moat over recent days!
To watch Swan Cam, viewers should head to the home page of The Bishop’s Palace website, www.bishopspalace.org.uk, and scroll down to the “Latest Videos” section at the bottom.
