A somewhat sad reflection....... They mate for life...
We have a pair who knock on our hull for feeding at 11:00 every morning.
By accident I discovered they wanted fresh water as much as food.
They bring enjoyment to us.
Probably killed by those black ones; will be considering a cull soon if they keep breeding as they are at Caversham
Looks like Laylam to me ? There has been a nest there for many years .
Regarding telling people about dead swans . I have found a few dead swans and no one wants to know .
It would be sad if the swan died of man made issues but otherwise just the reality of nature? Swans do die of natural causes.
No doubt someone will now say that I am a heartless b*st*rd
