More Swans 1st December at Branton Ponds

More swans but not wild ones this time,the first one was early this morning as Keith took the dog round the ponds.Standing on the ice with 2 Mute Swans was a stunning Black Swan it's white flight feathers showing well when it flew.The second bird,a Mute Swan could have been said to be wild as it was trapped in the school wildlife area and was not very happy,especially when Keith finally managed to catch it and release it onto the pond.

  1. Last time I saw a Black Swan was on the Tweed by the old bridge in Berwick with the big flock of Mutes - but at least 5 years ago.
