Swanning around the Solway

We took in a swan feed at Caerlaverock on the Goose Tour to the Solway. The Whoopers manage to somehow squabble amicably; never quite losing their aloofness. After feeding they walk to the far side of the pool and in turn small squadrons clear a runway to take off and get airborne; passing by the hide for us to photograph as they do so. Simply quite stunning.

Hiding away

We were looking through a load of ducks and swans up at Caerlaverock the other day and this little chapess was swimming among the maelstrom of feathers, beaks and webbed feet. Scaup are not unusual in the area. We found several on the estuary. More about the tour to the Solway and what we saw in future posts.
