Does anyone know of any location where there are largish numbers of young and/or recently fledged Black Swans?  

Wildcare is looking for a location to relocate a fledgling Black Swan that has been moved on by the parents.  They have already drowned one fledgling and we have another in care after a close call.

We need to find a safe place.  Somewhere not in another pair's territory.

According to eBird, there have been recent sightings of largish numbers at Yerrabi Pond and also in the lagoons in the Wollogorang region and Lake Bathurst.

I would be interested in talking to anyone who has visited these or other sites recently, to get some more information about whether they are suitable.
