Had a text this morning from Steve James, he’d found a flock of 21 adult Whooper Swans on the fishing lake at Cossington South. I finally got myself in to gear and got down there with the camera to be joined by Colin Green. From the lay-by the Whoopers were against the sun so we made our way round the lake.
With Swans or any white birds, getting the lighting right is always a challenge and I’m still not happy with the results.
After a while with the Swans whooping, washing and preening it was clear they were getting ready to go and at 11.30 the duly set off, had a fly round and headed West.
You know me I like a pun, hence the title and I love a bit of ABBA… so here they are.
