My pottery class did happen today, unlike a week ago, and I made a pinch pot and a tile. The tile was slightly better than the pot, so that's why I've blipped it, but it has be said that the only way (hopefully) is up.
I called in at Blackford Pond on the way home, and poor Mrs Swan is still sitting on the nest patiently. I wonder how much longer it will be. I did see the moorhen nest this time, it's just very well hidden.
