Baying Bewicks part 2
On friday 15th February, there were far fewer wild Swans out at Catfield/ Ludham and I counted around 138 Bewick's Swans not seeing any Whoopers this time. maybe the mild weather had enticed the Bewick's to start migrating back to Russia? Although I only had 20 minutes (lunchbreak birding) and spent most of my time trying to photograph a close group of Bewick's. Although the road (Catfield village to Ludham village road) in which I was parked was a straight road with traffic wheezing by, the only safe place to park was the pull in on the far side of the road, meaning the camera was a little further away from the Swans.
