Residents urged to slow down as Mount Annan swans welcome new family

The Cascades is famous across Macarthur for its Christmas display each year but Camden locals know it is also home to some beautiful black swans.

The swans, known affectionately as Jack and Jill, have welcomed a new family of six little cygnets.

Mount Annan resident Rebecca Lysle posted on the Camden-Narellan Community Noticeboard to warn people about the new residents.

“Can I ask those people who use The Cascades as a short cut to please slow down,” the post said.

“Our local swans, Jack and Jill now have a little family and they frequently cross the road and sometimes get stuck in the gutter.

“We are helping all we can, but would be really sad if they were hit by a car.

“Once again we had to stop traffic this morning and most people who stopped were really friendly and patient. Thank you.”

Residents are also urged not to feed the swans bread as it can be harmful or even fatal.
