08 Sep 2017 Photo of the week – Black Swan nesting

If you’ve been out for a drive lately around the region, you might have been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some of our wetland wildlife making the most of the swamps still filling as we head into the spring.

One species that is definitely enjoying the conditions and thinking about breeding, while the going is good, is the Black Swan.

This fantastic shot of a swan sitting on its nest (situated in a restored wetland) was taken by Robert Thompson.
