Edgerley - Sacred Whoopers!

I started the year with Whooper Swans (at Venus Pool) so thought it would be nice to finish with some? Trouble with the Edgerley / Melverley area there's a lot of land / floods much of which can't be reached and certainly not always easy for the camera! After an hour of driving round... no joy!

Then I hit lucky with one remnant flood near Edgerley, in with a dozen Mutes were this pair...


A bit of formation gliding...



Almost immediately after they flew off, another 'large white bird' loomed over the flooded field! Another specimen for the escapes list anyone?


Sacred Ibis is not a bird I'd chase or point a camera at but it seemed rude to ignore it at close quarters!


Best foot forward...


The Hawfinches sound interesting at Whitcliffe, a session over the Christmas period methinks?!
