My Photographs from the North West of England and sometimes further afield.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

One of the joys of winter are the swans and geese that visit our country. The Whooper Swan is one such bird that I love to see. Probably because they are so easy to photograph. There's no skulking around in bushes and hedges. There they are right in front of you, as bold as brass. You can't mistake them can you? Well, not unless it's a Bewick Swan, but that's for another day. Here is the big beast in all it's glory.
This guy was a bit feisty and in mid argument.
Something rather elegant about swans.
With a Greylag Goose for size comparison.
On take off. You can see the splash behind where the feet have been.
