Strange place to nest

These black swans have built their nest right beside a public walkway on a beach. Someone has placed a container of water for them. She takes a drink every now and then, moves her eggs around then settles back. Bottom right pic. shows where the nest is built. I hope the local dogs don't decide to hassle them. Father swan parades around on the waves, chasing away seagulls.
How absolutely amazing, she must feel very safe there. Lovely shots.

I do hope she isn’t disturbed. A great place for you to monitor progress in the nest though. I look forward to seeing more photos 😁.

Good luck to her, perhaps not the best place to settle down but kind of the person who left drinking water.

A random act of kindness placing the water for her :))

What an odd place to build a nest. Hope all ends well for them

That seem like a strange place for a nest, not much protection!

What a strange place to nest but she seems quite contented!

so tough for wildlife to cohabit with us, then people say - oh strange place, but there was probably little safe choices for her. how lovely someone has given her water :)

@koalagardens Yes, I know what you mean. I am really just remarking that it's unusual to see a swan in such a situation (which is a good thing, of course).

@girlie oh yes, it's a wonderful set of images :)
