Venus Pool - Bewick's Swans

A family group of Bewick's Swans dropped into VP the other day and have settled in the usual field with the Whoopers and Mutes at Cound by day. A nice surprise to find all eight yellow billed swans within the confines of VP and not 400m away this afternoon! Here's some images, concentrating initially on the Bewick's Swans......

The family group in the warm late afternoon light

Singling out the two juveniles.

One of the adults calling.....

Then some close up portraits of adult with juvenile.

A couple of comparison shots to close with a Whooper Swan latching on. Bill pattern and additional bulk quite obvious and useful additions to my identity crisis talk?

Maybe some more Whooper images to follow.....
