Mute Swan
December 2018.

A pre Christmas visit to relatives who live close to Slimbridge WWT in Gloucestershire meant that I could spend another day leisurely wandering around the grounds, and watching and photographing some of the wild birds from the hides overlooking the wetlands. A good number of  Bewicks Swans had arrived to join the other wildfowl on show. There had been a Jack Snipe showing quite well but unfortunately not when I was looking !, but a good day nonetheless.
