Venus Pool - Whooper drops in

At last I'd had the sense to 'wait for news' saving myself an unecessary trip to Gloucs and that most obliging of Pied Wheatears! The Friday night is flight night rule applied!

That meant, when I eventually emerged - a short day in Shropshire and there was only bird to show from it - a Whooper Swan on the fishing pool from VP reserve.

The Mute Swans seemed to tolerate it's presence.....

But it spent most of the time in the company of Canada Geese

Until I managed to single it out from the other residents....

Clocks go back tonight and I need to go forward - out of County! Wonder if the Squacco Heron in Notts will stick?
