Part 8. Slimbridge WWT. Bewick's Swan [Cygnus columbianus]

Adults are white all over and young birds greyish with a pinkish bill. Compared to the similar whooper swan, these swans have proportionally more black and less yellow on their bill. They're also smaller than both mute and whooper swans and have faster wingbeats. [RSPB]
