Swans get nest of lilos.

AIRBEDS have been used by a north Warwickshire man to create a floating nest area to keep swans' eggs safe.

Dave Evans, of Atherstone, has built a raft made of two lilos for a pair of breeding swans near his home to nest in.

He says their previous clutch of nine eggs were washed away by the rising waters, so he made the raft for their nest to float on and prevent any more eggs being lost.

Mr Evans bought the lilos for pounds 2 at a church fete.

The RSPB said it was pleased the nest had been saved but it reminded people it was illegal to disturb swans nests and warned the birds can be dangerous if provoked.
