Swan Diary #2 (4th April 2014)

So I have been regularly visiting the Swans Pond with not much to report … until today ! I biked it down as usual but found them building a nest a little bit up from where the had built one last year, but it is still close to the path so that is good  for me being able to film them.

There has been a lot of rainfall the past few days here in Scotland and the rivers and ponds have high water levels in them just now, but the swans seem to have built it up nice and high so hopefully it wont get washed away like their previous nest they had built 3 years ago.

Once I had filmed them I was heading towards the Thunder-bridge to go home but my path was blocked by the Bannock burn over flowing so I had to turn back from the way I had came.

When I go to the swans nest I noticed something in the nest as , awesome ! it was an egg already, so I got out my camera and took some more video of it.

So good news for the swans and hopefully we will see some cygnets this year !
