11 March 2010

Twelve yellow billed swans, which I thought looked like Whooper Swans, flew northwest over the North Dunes at 6pm this evening, then turned round and came back south along the coast.  I thought Pete would be able to confirm them by applying his new swan flight direction ID criteria, but he was not able to (due to the unexpected change of direction, I believe) so I'd better put them down as Bewpers (or Whoopwicks).
