They nestle on the ground and put their head and part of their neck under a wing.

I've seen swans in the sea before. Last year it the beach in Gdansk, Poland: it was about minus 10 degrees and there was ice on the sea and a group of 5 or 6 swans were swimming a few yards off the shore. I suspect that any nearby fresh water would have been frozen solid
