Cound - Whooper and Bewick's Swans

The nine Whooper swans were present here on New Years day but extremely distant. Since then they had been joined by two Bewick's swans and the only view I'd had was the whole group flying into VP to roost in virtual darkness a week ago. After a daytime disappearance further up river for a while, they were back in the usual field today! And sort of in range - for a group shot any way?

Here's all eleven swans!

The Whoopers....

 seven of them at rest.

And the two Bewicks.....

Maybe I'll catch them on Venus Pool one day?
