Having been alerted that Whooper Swans were on Breech Pool yesterday I made my way to the North Wall mid morning just in case they were still there. I arrived to find a couple of other birders overlooking the pool and sure enough one Whooper was being harassed by a pair of Mutes.
It was pursued so that it came a little nearer to me
before meeting up with its mate on the bank...but they continued to be harassed
...but at last the Mutes pushed off and the Whoopers were left in peace.

watching the Whoopers...they have wonderful fluffy rear ends!
