On Guard – The cob swan guards the pen on her nest on the canal towpath
On Guard – The cob swan guards the pen on her nest on the canal towpath
As far as I am aware this nest – in a very exposed position on a busy canal towpath – was successful. It was situated only yards from the top gate of Lock No 1 of the Aylesbury Arm of the Grand Union Canal.

Step through pictures of, or near, the junction SP9114 : The Junction, Grand Union Canal, Marsworth.
Last SP9114 : “Grasshopper” besides the Waterway Office at Marsworth.
Next: SP9114 : The towpath is closed to dogs.
