Swan song

Fittingly enough, we gave our swan-song Naturetrek slide show today at WWT's superb Welney reserve in the Ouse Washes. With time on our hands we watched the well-loved swan feed where whoopers and mutes bustled and hundreds of pochard and mallard frothed and foamed in the water. Further afield was a lone Bewick's, while the marshes teemed with wigeon and lost in a small flock of greylags grazed a single European whitefront.

Home this evening. And smiling.
