The Bewick’s Swan is a winter visitor to the Uk found mainly in coastal areas of England and the east coast of Ireland. It is estimated that around 7000 birds come to the UK each year from their breeding grounds in Northern Russia.
I am semi-retired after a career in medical sciences. I now work from home doing independent research and consultancy amongst other things. One advantage of this is that I do have time to indulge my interests including birdwatching, natural history, steam trains and history particularly ancient history.
