It's a busy time on Ham Pond with several birds working hard to bring up this year's brood.

The cygnets have now emerged and are being closely guarded by their parents. Here some of the cygnets are on the nest next to their mother who, soon after this, took them under her wing.

Some coots have built their nest on the opposite side of the pond but there is no sign of their young yet.
