A wonderful account posted by Caryn Ritchie of the Friends of Cape Wildlife:
Today was a great day. I got to release a mute swan who has been at CWC getting treatment for lead poisoning. She was released at Mill Pond to be the mate to a male swan who has been alone for four years. To say he was excited is an understatement. I'm expecting babies this spring after today's initial greeting. She flew, swam and flapped beautifully.
