photo of swan family
This family of swans managed to get themselves into Lock 10 of the Atherstone Flight as we were descending, despite trying to shoo them out. We eventually brought "Paws" in carefully and dropped the lock. They calmly exited when the bottom gates were opened .......

....... and promptly went straight into Lock 11!

Having dropped this lock, they left and calmly continued along the cut as it were absolutely normal for swans to descend through locks.
