Swan Diary #7 (Nearly Time) May 2013

On the hottest day of the year (so far) I took a bike ride to the swans pond to check on the progress of the swans nesting. I think this is week 5 or maybe even 6 of her on the nest, so we are very near the eggs hatching.

There are 6 eggs in the nest and she has been turning them regularly, with the nest being very close to the path there are lots of dangers around, from dogs, foxes etc. but so far all is well.

The female was building up the nest as the male was in the middle of the pond checking out the new family of ducklings who must have been born only days earlier.
