This video from England is called Bewick Swans WWT Slimbridge.
March 4, 2013 by Anke Bruin, Forestry Department
No less than 69 Bewick’s Swans, including 6 first year youngsters (still a little gray) rested in the third Kroon’s polder wetland. Even the Chinook helicopter of the Air Force did not drive them away, they are probably very tired. This morning, colleague Herman Vogel😉 mentioned the beautiful white birds. Bewick’s Swans have been in Vlieland earlier, but never such a big group. They are migrating from the south to the northern tundra and they are quite right, they just come here to rest and recharge.
A slide show about this is here (scroll down).
Also from Vlieland: this morning the first spoonbills of spring flying.
