Mistral the Swan


Wonder and Storm, two of Mistrals young.JPG

Mistral, named because she came to the Harwich area (Essex) in the windy month of March 1999, has had a sad and chequered life. She has had two mates and both were killed in another part of Dovercourt. So the Harwich Environmental Action Team (HEAT), who had been caring for her for over two years, moved her in the summer of 2001 to the ponds in Dovercourt for her own safety. The Harwich Environmental Action Team were then looking forward to the day when she may finally take off with her family and hopefully find another mate. Read the full story on Nathanville.
