Thanks to JF for finding these Bewick's Swans. Originally giving distant views at East Chevington, they later relocated to Warkworth and gave splendid views.
Best comparative shot I could manage, juv Whoopers and adult Bewick's.
Whoopers. Plenty of Juveniles this year.
My first beach walk produced a Wheatear but not a rare one. This poor bird has a damaged or diseased bill. It also looked a little dishevelled. Five more beaches were checked and although no Wheatears were found they all produced good birds including; Purple Sandpipers, Snow Buntings and Twite.
