Swans nest at the feet of Sir Peter

Two Mute Swans have built a nest at the feet of the Statue of the founder of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Sir Peter Scott and the London Wetland Centre Barnes.

The female has already laid her clutch of eggs.

Just been catching up on your posts Pete, you have some lovely photos there. I loved the Buzzard getting harassed and the water babies also the Garden Warbler.

I seem to recall Tricia telling us last year the Swans nested at the feet of Sir Peter, and I commented on how apt that seemed and how he would have loved it. I hope the eggs will be successful.

We seemed to have lost a day somewhere your post says wednesday, i know i am a liitle out of touch but not that much LOL. Great story anyway!

Well, the Swans have three eggs that I could see when I visited last Saturday. There may have been more as I only had a glimpse when the parents were changing shifts for incubating.

SS is right - there was a nest last year as well and included it in a post in March 2008.
