When we first arrived at the pond, the father swan was all the way on the other side from where the mother swan was nesting. Apparently, there was a dog on that side of the pond and the father swan was making sure the dog knew who was the boss. We left and went for ice cream and a walk around the Pembroke Herring Run before returning to see the swans before heading home. On the way back the father swan had come over by the mother swan and slept near by.
