Whooper swans leaving Argyll
Whooper swans leaving Argyll
Yesterday afternoon I watched this group of 15 whooper swans fly in to Loch Ederline; this morning I saw them fly off on their spring migration north to their summer breeding grounds. There were a total of around 32 whoopers overnighting on the loch, being given close attention by the resident pair of mute swans.
The flock circled around the village a couple of times and then headed out west towards the sea. There are a number of juveniles in this group of birds.
It won’t be long now before the incoming migrants, ospreys, swallows and martens return from lower latitudes. Spring’s finally around the corner.
