Melverley Floods - Whoopers etc!

Seem to be striking lucky lately and an afternoon in the Melverley Floods turned out well with Whooper Swans showing well albeit at distance! There were 23 visible (and maybe more nearby) including two family groups which flew in during the afternoon...

First things first, another new bird for the year - Tree Sparrow (here's 2) amongst the hedgerows, feeding with House Sparrow, Chaffinch and Yellowhammer...



Another Great White Egret too, this is one of TWO present. The second bird was only seen at great distance!


The best views of the Whooper Swans were during arrivals...


A bit of 'out of beat' synchro flight from parent with juv....



 And as this group finished their taxi to the far side of the water, a flash of yellow was in view!


More to come...
