We passed through at 8am and the two resident swans (Billy & Edwina) were on the Top Lodge - presume they are getting the nest site ready.
On our way back they were still there giving the others on the big lodge some peace for a change. I put half a kilo of sunflower hearts out near the new feeding station - plenty of small birds about.
The Cormorant had just finished its breakfast and flown to the raft that was about 9.40am. Was drying off as we passed heading for home.
