The Swans Return
The swans left the college lake on the 10th February, to where is unknown, but today, exactly a month later, they have returned. They stayed on the lake after they abandoned their nest last year, see blog entry 18th June 2014 'Swans Abandon Their Nest', following the unsuccessful incubation of their eggs, unlike the previous year when they left immediately following their first attempt at incubating their eggs. Last year they started to rebuild their nest amongst the reeds on the 21st March 2014, see blog entry 'Rebuilding Last Year's Nest'. Ali will be watching them to see when the begin to rebuild this year and, hopefully, it will be third time lucky for the swans.
