Those Ducks and Swans Again

Saturday 8th January 2011

The group of swans comprising an adult Whooper Swan, seven Bewick's Swans (4 ad. and 3 juv.) and nine Mute Swans (5 ad. and 4 juv.) were still in a field at Longney this morning, near Waterend GR SO 757140 (below).

At WWT I had nice sunlit views of the first-winter female Lesser Scaup (top photo and more below) and the two first-winter Greater Scaups (bottom photos) in the Rushy Pen, while the female Smew was on South Lake.
