Greylag and Bewicks over the Severn

I’m so very grateful to be living so close to the river Severn, with all the sights she offers. Brown and fearsomely tidal, she is home to so many creatures. Here are a couple of shots from a walk the other day.

The ancestor of most domestic geese, the greylag is the largest and bulkiest of the wild geese native to the UK and Europe. This one seems to be making eye contact, but in truth is far away from where I wave ‘the Hubble’ in its direction!

These Bewick Swans are probably flying home to Siberia after overwintering at Slimbridge WWT.
