Bewick Swan

By Glostopcat  
A shot of one of the bewick swans that overwinter at Slimbridge each year, this was taken from the Rushy Pen hide in late February. All of the bewick swans have now left for Siberia and will not return until late this autumn. V2 and V3 were taken with my Canon Ixus compact camera from the Peng Observatory when I was eating my lunch there and show a rainbow over the Rushy Pen Lake.
