Lapwings and Cormorants

Mute Swan, Cygnus olor
I haven’t been out for two days due to the rain and high winds. My last trip to Arundel WWT was on Friday when a flock of around 40 Lapwings wheeled around the reserve. A pair of Cormorants fished in front of the Ramsar hide and a pair of Swans preened in front of the Sand Martin hide.
