Plenty of Swans and water
11:th of March –08
Even if the waterflow is lower this week, there are still plenty of flooded fields in the valley. Ploughed, flooded arable fields are the most popular feeding grounds for the Whooper Swans, when they stopover on migration.
Today I count 1.795 Whoopers in the valley. That´s plenty, but I sense that this years migration is going fast over due to the mild weather.
Even today, despite mist and overcast, flocks of migrating Swans and Geese, are flying northeast, taking advantage of the mild, southwesterly tailwind.
