Whooper Swan at Catcott Lows

December 02, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

We've had a party of ten mixed adult and juvenile whoopers and  singleton adult round and about recently.  The group of ten unfortunately for me had moved on today but I was lucky enough to catch this solitary adult in front of the hide at Catcott Lows Nature Reserve.  Unfortunately the light was appalling by this stage but I got a few record shots below. 

A word of warning to anyone visiting the main hide by car, the approach road is deeply rutted and unless you have good suspension and ground clearance, you may be scraping your undercarriage at times!  It is possible to park by the entrance to the reserve and walk up the road.  Directions on Streetmap.
