Black and white swans at Hammond's Pond
Black and white swans at Hammond's Pond
Black swans were introduced to Britain from Australia - for information see Wikipedia LinkExternal link .
This black swan arrived at the pond in early November 2017, and seems to have taken up residence for the winter. It probably gets plenty of the food which people bring for the birds, even though the male mute swan sometimes chases it off aggressively.
