Pre-flight checks.

This Whooper Swan will be off to its breeding grounds in Iceland soon, so it has to be in top condition.
I met up with Psilo yesterday (Sunday) for a few hours birdwatching at WWT Martin Mere - boy, was it cold! Fortunately you can thaw out in the cafe there with a couple of hot coffee's (and a cake of course!), while you discuss the pros and cons of various Hardy Geraniums.

Great photo muddy.....clear and fresh looking. Getting ready for their summer home. I like to go to Martin Mere. Fascinating place. We used to go there when we used to stay at Southport until OH became unwell.
