Swan Vistas

The relentless southbound Whooper passage continues over recent days, and what a joy it is to behold - is there anything quite as awe-inspiring as migrating swans? I'm unlikely to get better photos than I was lucky enough to capture the other day (see here), but to give a little context, here's a selection of different perspectives, all from the bay, over the last couple of days.

I'm not sure if the flock of 42 passing the Filey lifeboat were witnessed by the crew, but they certainly were by fellow birders as they passed Buckton, Bempton and Flamborough a short while later. The photos of the flock hitting Flamborough Head were taken from the end of the road here in Filey, about ten miles way.
