This is a swan's nest I've been keeping an eye on, hoping I'll be in the right place at the right time to see the cygnets when they're really small. Hopefully they'll hatch within the next week or so.

These swans are quite used to people being near them, but if anybody walks a dog nearby the male takes appropriate action!
