Whooper swans? Have only seen these very occasionally here in UK (and even then they might have been Bewicks - but certainly not Mutes). Brilliant shot of these fabulous birds. Focus spot-on methinks. Y*.

Best wishes, Brian.

Yes, they are Whooper Swans - our national bird. They were almost lost because of heavy hunting and persecution after the second WW and during 50-60´s, but now they´re back and are very common these days - gorgeous noble birds!!! Thank you Brian!
