Mixenden Res'r

Photo's of part of a group of 24 Whooper Swans at Mixenden Res'r this afternoon including 2 juveniles (lower picture - right hand bird shows one of the juv's).
All thanks to BS who earlier had a conversation with someone who had visited the res'r earlier and seen these yellow-billed swans. A great find, they are probably on a stage of heading back to Iceland in readiness for the next breeding season.
Also present at least 3 female Goldeneye and what looked like a dead male floating upside down in the middle.
A pair of goosander also present as well as BS and NK on a flying visit - like us!
Well done to the finder.
