The mute swan is Britains largest bird. Their distinctive s-shaped neck, white plumage and orange bill makes them easily recognisable around Arrans coastline. They are monogamous and build their nests on large mounds close to water, returning to the same nest sight each year, restoring and rebuilding as necessary. They are aggressive when defending their nest. They eat submerged aquatic plants and often graze on land.
