|The Whooper Swan at the Riverside Park|
As I said the other day, the adult Whooper Swan is still on the Wear at the Riverside Park. It arrived on the 23rd September and I posted some pictures of it with its ring on 25th September. I've just had a reply on where it was rung.
Many thanks for your email regarding Whooper Swan. It's ringing history is as follows:
26.09.10 - Female Whooper Swan - River Ouse, Cawood, York (SE 574 379)

So there you have it, I photographed the bird and its ring the day before it was put on its leg ... Spooky or what? I've asked Dan to check his date.
