Melverley Green - a dozen Whoppers

I had been keeping a trip to Melverley Green up my sleeve for some time with the Whooper swans being banker birds for my County yearlist. The weather was vile (rain/snow/sleet) but despite this, it was great to find numbers had increased to 12 comprising 8 adults and 4 juveniles (2007 Shrops tick No 154!). A couple of Mutes were keeping them company.

A brief visit to Venus Pool in the fading light (and heavier sleet) proved that at 640ASA and 1.30 sec, a decent record shot or two of the female Goldeneye was possible!
