Swan Landing in the Fleet at Abbotsbury Swannery
Swan Landing in the Fleet at Abbotsbury Swannery
Mute swans have been nesting in this sheltered spot in the lea of the shingle beach of Chesil Bank for over 600 years. A sanctuary for the swans was established at least as early as 1393 by monks of the nearby Benedictine abbey. Hundreds of swans nest here every year, and at any one time there may be as many as 1000 in the sanctuary.
