A festival of Swans

The plan had been to go to Anglessey Abbey to look around the gardens. It was glorious sunshine this morning but as I headed north of Bishops Stortford the rain fell so a change of plans and off to Welney.

Oh boy was it cold!!! Still there were some nice bird, lot of Whooper Swans, Barnacle geese, Snipe, Pintail, lots of Wigeon, other ducks and Kestrel.

This juvenile mute wanted to have its pic taken!

Some more mutes

Another Whoooper

and to finish Mr & Mrs Pochard.

I love the first picture. Wonderful shot. They're all good mind you but the first one is my favorite.
