Bewick Swans. Four of them. Quite unexpected. How do I know? I was a bird spotter, I would have you know.

The swans were on a small river on a huge flood plain, completely disproportionate to the river's size!!! Beautiful.

Turn around and these two chaps were quacking away. No idea what they are but they quack. Can you help identify them? We also saw a flock of cranes but no photo, unfortunately. And I know you will not believe me without a photo, but on the next leg of the journey home I saw two pairs of seagulls. Yes seagulls. I swear. They were stood on a nearly built section of a road. Lost I assume!!!
