Episode 9 – Swans

Swans are nesting now along the banks of the canal and by waterways all over the country, guarding their nests against foxes, mink and dogs with their walkers.  Swans have a special place in our ancient folklore, and since the middle ages were domesticated for their ornamental beauty and value as food.  Nature File this week explores the wonderful world of swans.
