I have been in touch with the Council Ranger at Northam, WA regarding the
Mute Swans.

There is an enclosure which the swans may/may not use for breeding. The
enclosure was constructed about 18 years ago.

The swan’s wings are trimmed each year when they have their check-up and
receive their inoculations. Their wings have not been pinioned for at least
20 years

For the twitchers amongst us it would seem that they are no longer a valid
bird (and probably have not been for some time).
