WHOOPER SWANS AT MARTIN MERE
In late October the arrival of the Whooper Swans at Martin Mere from Iceland is an amaziing sight. They make their incredible journey once the colder weather has arrived, and can travel with the young cygnets in around 13 hours and will stay in Martin Mere or similar habitat until Spring. I took this picture at the beginning of November and watched hundreds of these graceful birds arriving throughout the day
Also arriving with the Whooper Swans were the Pink Footed Geese from Iceland which winter here until around April
