Wapping swans extend their nest – photos

By on May 24, 2013 in Wildlife

The Wapping swans were busy yesterday extending their nest. If you look at these photos and the previous photos which were taken less than 24 hours apart you can see the difference.

The nest – which floats around – is at times a little too close to the footpath for my liking, especially this morning. However it is illegal to in any way tamper with a swans nest.

If you would like to find out more about swans have a look at the Canal & RIver Trust site.

And remember – make sure to keep your dog on a lead near the swans. They will win any fight, one of the swans is huge!
