After many weeks of drought conditions it has finally rained again in Kilkenny, helping to moisten the parched earth.
The swans and signets at Lakeside were out enjoying some new grass.
Kilkenny is fortunate to have a number of very attractive lake and marsh habitats within the City. Lakeside is currently springing to life. to assist the wild fowl a floating nesting area has been put in place and also a small island had been planted. Currently there are a pair of swans nesting, they and the other wild foul are working hard to prepare their nests.
