Close to the swans at Verulam Lake, St Albans, February 2021
The local swans have become very brave and cheeky. Lockdown means increased numbers of visitors to Verulam Lake, and many people feed the swans despite the clears signs that this is not good for them and the other wildlife living here. The swans and geese now simply expect all humans to provide food and come over to demand it. I was pecked and harassed while taking these photos!
