Nest In reedbed deserted, high enough out of water so suspect predator, something strong enough to see off adults Swans.

7 sitting but nests not safe at all,what rafts left in poor repair, high winds will wash them out and predator surrounds gone. Otters a real danger in my opinion.

This morning. Spotted highish at far Sth end of lake from hide, it did two circuits down there then one quick circuit past hide then not seen again. Checked both lakes 3+ times. With these had same before, think lakes great for insect eating Terns but too deep/ dark to spot small fish prey?
