Whooper Swan Family

This family party of Whooper Swans provided a beautiful spectacle as they fed on a roadside loch. I would estimate the four cygnets to be just a few days old and both Mum and Dad plus our four-year-old daughter were transfixed by their beauty in such idyllic surroundings. A very special moment!

Wonder if I might bring these little ones to the grove and keep them just as they are, what precious little ones they are and your captures are splendid indeed~ They make me smile. Have a safe and wonderful weekend~

I think that looking forward is an understatement!

Cant wait!
Glad I have a lot on beforehand to keep me busy!

The reports of the Orca sightings were just a little gripping off!
oh and 30 mins of watching an Otter!

Still Shetland Wildlife guides deliver so in eager anticipation of the Autumn dates!

Cheers Corinna - we're very proud of our guides and the great job that they do! Fingers crossed for an autumn-filled with great birds!
