|wedged between the two|
Having taken the next photo, mainly for the front cover of ECP&DA Outlook magazine of which Ian is the editor, the Swan in the foreground suddenly turned and headed for the hedge. Intrigued I followed and found the Cob settling down on a nest.
The residence may get a shock when trying to leave by this gate and so close to the footpath that walkers and dogs may become a real problem. A little early for nesting (most start in April) maybe this is a trial run by a young pair. We will never know the outcome though as hopefully, we aim to leave Sandiacre before the weekend.
