CommentI have not seen Black Swans on the Hospital Reservoir before. The water is surrounded by a busy golf course which makes it difficult for the swans to graze. The Covid pandemic and a very wet winter have reduced the number of golfers dramatically, perhaps making the area more attractive for swans. This is one of a pair. The mate is now, in August, nesting in amongst the reeds around a small central island.
