I mentioned in yesterday's blog "Almost There", some of the key requirements for a swan's nest.  Here are two other key points which you now can clearly see in this island like nest.

The nest has to be high enough to prevent water from getting in and swamping it.

As a protective measure against mammalian predators, the moat or ditch will surround the nest.

The final size of the nest depends on the amount and type of nearby material.

Also, if there is a lot of material around the nest site. The final nest will be larger it will be added to during the incubation process.  My best guess is that this one will continue to grow.
