Whoopers






















This flock of whooper swans was cruising the small lake that forms behind Warkworth Dunes on the Northumberland coast this afternoon.....





















.....all adults except for one juvenile.....
















... with a lot of noisy calling .......wonderful wild sounds that you can listen to by clicking here......
..until they all took off and headed over to the cereal fields to feed....

  4. Hi Roy, I think the sound of whopper swans is one of the most evocative in nature.... true wildness
