Greetings to all:
On the way to work Monday morning 07/28/2003, I found a single almost adult 
Tundra Swan at Leggett's Pond on Hwy 58W in Halifax County.  I was able to stop 
and got a good look at the bird for about 10 minutes before I had to leave to 
get to work.

On the way home on Monday evening, I stopped to see if the Swan was still 
there.  Even though the swan was gone, I did talk to a woman whose husband 
works on the Leggett farm.  She informed me that the swan flew off when she and 
her children arrived at the pond to go for a swim.  She also informed me that 
the swan arrived at the pond on Friday 07/25/2003.

I stopped by on the way to work this morning and again on the way home this 
evening but no swan.
