The first cygnets of the year have hatched at a famous swannery - heralding the traditional start of summer.<br />
<br />
According to an ancient proverb, the spectacle of the first baby swan at historic Abbotsbury Swannery in Dorset marks the first day of British summertime.<br />
<br />
The first of the 80 nests has now started hatching with hundreds of cygnets due to arrive by the end of the month.
