Dear all,

The swans nesting on Plough Reach (approximately half way down, in the cut / stream) are apparently now sitting on eggs and as a result they have become very defensive. Please ensure that your crews do not stop between the crossing point and First Post Corner, as it will agitate the swans, and the male in particular is likely to attack rowers or coxes. If traffic permits, giving them a wider berth isn’t a bad idea either.

Please could you pass this message on to all coxes, scullers and steerers.

Best wishes,
