30 April 2016 - Sheepwash, Northumberland.

This evening we visited Wansbeck Riverside Park at Sheepwash for a walk along the River Wansbeck to Sheepwash Bridge where a swan had built her nest. The nest was on a small island in the middle of the river just below the bridge and visible from the riverside footpath.

The first three photos below are views along the River Wansbeck. followed by two views of the swan sitting on her nest. Passers-by who we spoke to said she had quite a few eggs - hopefully they would all be successfully hatched eventually.

This morning we visited the small lake at Coney Garth just outside Ashington to take photos of the swan who builds her nest near the roadside.

This swan has a nest which is like a small island and has been sitting on it for weeks. She is visible from the road if you are in a bus, truck or high 4x4 car. Below are four photos of the lake and the swan sitting on her nest. * Update - she had seven cygnets.
