Nesting swan

It is good to see the swans busy building a nest at this time of the year. Previously their nest has been on the small island in the middle of the pond but the water is a little higher now and that island is a lot smaller as a result. This year their nest is on the North side of the pond in amongst the reeds,

The nest looks almost finished and the pen is adding the final touches to it by bringing some of the smaller lengths of reed closer to her.
