Nests abandoned

Thanks to Steve Cornish for letting me know that the coots' nest in Norway Cut did not survive the strong winds yesterday, due to the pontoon on which it was located being submerged.  The swans at the end of the dock have abandoned their nest and the three remaining eggs, and the parents and cygnet can now be spotted on the water.  Photographs below, all by Steve Cornish:
