Image 011 is of an adult Whooper Swan flying against some nice fluffy clouds.  I was at Slimbridge WWT in Gloucestershire when I took this image, and expected the white bird with a yellow beak flying towards me to be a Bewicks Swan as Whooper Swans are quite scarce here.  I later realised, after editing my images that this indeed was a Whooper Swan.  Unexpected bonus!!

Whooper Swan, Cygnus cygnus, Slimbridge WWT, Gloucestershire, October, 2010.
