We are sad to report that one of the Park’s black swans, Delilah has died. She died on January 29 and seems to have been attacked at the feeding station by a dog. She was quite feisty and was probably protecting her domain. Being injured, she swam with the male black swan – Samson – to the dam wall end of the Park and died in the water. She has been buried in the park.
Since then Samson has swallowed a stick lying in the water – probably from storm Doris – and has badly injured his gullet. If he survives he will then be taken to a sanctuary to recover.
We are sad to lose our Black Swans Samson and Delilah.
