Mr and Mrs Black Swan and a Pestering Pheasant.
This is the first time in the four years I have lived opposite the swans that they have made a nest. It's not in a good place for me to get a decent photograph but if you look closely you can just see the twiggy nest. ( it's a little clearer in the extra) The pheasant is one of two cock pheasants that also live across the road and they have been tormenting Mrs Swan whilst she sits on her eggs by dashing up to her and then rushing off again as she hisses at them . I am assuming there are eggs there as she never seems to leave the nest. I will be watching we anticipation for some baby swans in due course!
