Testwood Lakes

I left early from work to meet Dan at my house, light was exactly in our favour, and the Whooper Swans had been reported for some time now. Whooper Swans are a mega hampshire bird, and was the first time i had heard of one in the county since I had been birding. The 5 Whoopers showed well if not at range, one of which seemed secluded from the rest of the group for what ever reasons. And the local Mutes weren't too happy about their presence.

See how the right hand Whooper appears to become secluded from the rest of the group. Quality hampshire bird(s). (c) Ashley Howe

Further inspection of the area, and Dan spotted a Little Ringed Plover, my first of the year, showing quite nicely infront of us. Not a bad last minute trip out this evening.
