Bewick's Swan (Cygnus columbianus)

I was at Slimbridge WWT again yesterday, and the Bewick's Swans were there too, but only a few of them, normally you would be able to see several hundreds of them, the weather must be gentler than it used to be.

 Are you laughting at me?

  40. Beautiful photos Bob! I have been looking forward to seeing the Bewick's on your blog, they are such lovely swans. I do wish Slimbridge was just a bit nearer to me. If we didn't have an elderly, frail dog we could make a day trip of it but it is too long to leave our old dog.

    I loved the photos of the elegant Pintail on the last post too.

    It is raining and dull here....again!!!
