Merely a Whooper


This young, bolshy Whooper Swan has recently taken up residence on Scarborough Mere and, although it was dark, damp and dreary, after our successful jaunt to the harbour we thought we'd drop by on the way home anyway. Again, very glad we did, because of the 15 or so swans present (the rest all Mutes as you'd expect), the Whooper turned out to be the least fazed and most curious of them all, even seeing off its common cousins several times with a well-placed arse-bite or two. Respect.
