Expecting the splish-splash of tiny feet

No, not those kind of tiny feet...

The swans have clearly not read the bird guides that say they should use the same nesting site every year, because when the nice Trust for Urban Ecology people dumped a load of reeds at our end of the dock for use as nesting material, they decided to come and sit on the pile and call it a nest, instead of lugging reeds back to the corner where they have nested previously. So we can keep a closer eye on them this year.
