Hilfield Reservoir - 19.11.17

Whooper Swans

Just over a month since I last went birding I popped over to my old patch to see the 10 Whooper Swans that had arrived mid morning. I timed it perfectly as after no more than 5 minutes or so viewing they took flight and headed north. They were later seen in Cambridgeshire. The group contained 2 adults and 8 juveniles. I had seen a couple of Whooper's in Herts in the past but couldn't find any notes on them so these become my first noted/official birds for the county.
