Venus Pool - Bewick's early departure

An early pre-dawn start at VP paid dividends today with the Bewick's Swan clearly visible before the light got going. Eventually, with the ISO cranked up to 2000, photography was possible, against a backdrop of 75 Mute Swans. The rest of the 100+ gathering were on the fishing pool.

Here's a couple Bewick's / Mute close encounters...






Eventually paddling closer!




Then heading back to the open water near the middle island...


 It was now 8.30 and a few calls announced imminent departure (nothing else went)!





Soon reaching take off speed...





Mind your head!




Up, Up and away to the swan field over at Coundlane...
