Venus Pool - Whooper Swans

I was hoping for Snipe in the snow but they were all feeding distantly on the North marsh. Instead, at 13:00, a group of four Whooper Swans flew over the North hide - settling down in front of the main hide - I relocated!

The local bouncer decided not to take them on!

They came close enough for head shots :-)

Just like the Bewick's.... caught them in angelic pose.....

There were at least 70 Common Snipe seen in flight occasionally but I'm rather glad these flew in...
