Shibden Park - Possible Whooper Swan

A visit to Shibden Park this morning so Abigail could have a ride around on her bike.

We were fortunate with the weather.
Although it was cold it remained dry until, after a green train ride, and as we headed for the car, the hailstones came along.

The usual birds were here:

Mute Swan, Mallard, Coot, Moorhen - No Gulls.

Sue spotted a large Swan flying fast and very high NNE.

I managed a few very distant photos.

The very, very long neck was the obvious feature.
The photos have been cropped and lightened a bit but were too distant to get much colour into them.

Given the long thin neck I would plump for a Whooper, any comments would be appreciated.


Possible Whooper Swan - original and cropped and lightened a bit.
