Bewick's Swan - Cygnus columbianus bewickii

They have landed, about 30 of them. A bit unshelved after their long journey. More of them to come. 
Photographed at Rushy Hide, Slimbridge WWT, Gloucestershire, GB.

  5. Hi Bob,
    These swans are very charming. We don't see them much and in my région, never!
    You're lucky.

  7. There are two areas to the south of us that attract great quantities of swans--- Not these, but still amazing to see.

  12. Thank you for showing us these wondeful birds, Bob. I've not yet caught up with Bewick's this winter, but will have to make an effort soon to put that right. Take good care and keep warm - - - Richard

  14. Hi Bob,
    You lucky man, I am still waiting to see some.
    They are such a beautiful swan, and you get 30, they look how I do after a long flight, in need of a wash and brush up.
    All the best, John
