we are very luck this year and have two sets of beautiful swans residing at Bessy Beck.
The first pair have grabbed the best position and nested on the island in the middle of the Island Lake. The second pair have not yet decided where to build. On Monday we had to go on a rescue mission, the pair had decided to take a walk.! They were along the A685 heading towards Ravenstonedale. Following a successful march back along the road and through Newbiggin on Lune, the pair were back on the Mallard Lake, washing and drinking and having a well earned rest.
