 So at last I have managed to sketch Mildred  (the female half of our beautiful local nesting swans ); building her high reed nest around her; she managed to build it about 2 feet high, so I am sure she feels so secure.

Sketch was done back at the studio ! again I used wax resist for the nest, to achieve the rough twiggy effect of reeds.

Once on the nest, she seems to stay all day, and already she has clocked up at least 4/5 weeks on the nest; I am late with this sketch.! I glimpsed about 4 eggs.
