Baying Bewicks & Whooping Whoopers

At lunchtime today, I spent half an hour (I had a work talk at nearby Scratby) 1-1.30pm watching 3 separate groups of wild swans there was quite a gathering, they were just off the A149 at Catfield/ Ludham with one group of 115 Bewick's 4 Whooper Swans around 500 yards west of the west side road in a ploghed field next to a watery lake, there was a separate group of 17 Bewick's Swans much further away, and around 200 Bewicks Swans, 4 Whooper Swans in a field nearer Ludham, it was lovely to hear these Swans calling with the Whoopers whooping and the Bewicks baying. I was able to stop quite close to the Whoopers but stopping near the Bewick's was impossible to do safely on such a busy side road to Ludham, which was a pity as i still haven't got a decent shot of Bewick's yet.
