New Island....New Home!

I don't recall ever seeing a pair of Mute Swans on New Island in the middle of Pagham Harbour but during the past few days a pair have taken up residency and a shallow nest has been built and the pen is now sitting on it with the cob keeping guard a few metres away. I don't think they have anything to fear but I'm not sure how the Peregrines will take to one of their favourite sites being occupied by the 'intruders' !

Forgot to mention that a Wood Sandpiper was on Breech Pool a couple of days ago along with the Garganeys and a pair of Little Ringed Plovers.
