Bewick's Swan (Cygnus columbianus)

A differnt type of Swan today, filmed at Slimbridge WWT, their home for this winter. Every year, there are a large amount of them, coming from Siberia. It might get cold, but in Siberia, it is nothing compared to what would have done, brrrrrr. Anyway, they have started coming over to England. Oh yes, it didn't RAIN today.

  10. Very nice Bob, it is not so easy to make good photos when birds are this white. But you did a great job! I like them a lot, these Bewickys and I'm looking out for them to come over and stay the winter. Great birds, great pictures!

    Regards,
    Marianne

  22. Beautiful swan and glad it was nice outside for you. This Bewick's must have been important because I see that name with several bird species...including a wren that lives here.
