For the last 3 days a Trumpeter Swan has resided in the creek (once called Noyes’s Creek) between the Tollington Bridge at Beavermead Park and Armour Road. It is probably quite young because its neck still has a grey shade. The yellow spot on the face is not visible. It is tagged with bright yellow wing tags, number J82. It seems calm and not frightened by quiet approach. Many passers by on the Trans-Canada Trail have noticed it.
