In a #BeastsofUoN first, a pair of swans have settled down to nest at the edge of the lake on Jubilee Campus.
You can see the marvellous sight just outside the Exchange Building on Jubilee Campus. Our grounds team have protected the nest with fencing and provided an information sign, and we ask you to please watch the birds from a safe distance and avoid disturbing them. The nest and eggs are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and it is an offense subject to certain exceptions (such as the control of a species for permitted reasons under licence) to intentionally take, damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while it is in use or being built.
Our campuses are home to many animals – make sure to share your own photos using #BeastsofUoN on Twitter and Instagram.
