Whooper Swan

Having watched a week of Autumn Watch I thought it only right to go to Martin Mere to see what's been happening (Martin Mere has hosted Autumn Watch for the past 2 years in case you didn't know).

I can definitely confirm that the Whooper swans have arrived and where landing in numbers whilst I was there, here are a few shots from this afternoon, I have a load I am going through and will post more over the next few days.


I only wish it hadn't been so dull.

All photos taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm.

  1. Hi Mike, challenging photo conditions but once again your images look nice and sharp. So far my favourite is the pair in the last shot.

    I love the dramatic side/backlight in the first image.

  3. I love that first shot...really wonderful capture! I like the look on its face....sort of zoned out and bored looking. Terrific photos!

  4. I do like these shots. It isn't always easy to get a great shot unless conditions are ideal and everything works. It seems to me that you made the best possible shots. I like your work, Mike.

  6. These are amazing! It's so difficult to capture something in flight. Most times by the time I find it it the lens it's gone. :-) I really appreciate your great work on these.
