I was watching a juv Whooper Swan amongst the Mutes at QE2 last week and presumed that it was the swallow Whooper but when I look at your pictures I think they could be two different birds.
Beautiful photographs John. There have been some lovely cloud formations and sky colours. I read once that it happens when there are extremely low temperatures, like we've had recently.I particularly like the third photograph.
Sorry i've been so long getting back to reply but been laid low for the past few days.I saw that Juv. Whooper reported by your good self on New Years Day but they are certainly not the same bird. Cheers Crammy.Thank you Lesley for your kind comments. The colouration and structure of the clouds was more than interesting. Should have sent one into BBC weather and ask........how/when/why?????
Sorry to hear you've been poorly John. I hope you're feeling better now.
