Winter Swans at Eglwys


I took a very welcome call from Highlander today. Informing me that 5 Whooper Swans had been found at Eglwys by George Morgan(who else?). Not an easy bird to see in Glamorgan anymore!

I notice that the MapMate database doesn't have any Whooper Swan records for Eglwys at all! None for NPT either. Eglwys really is experiencing an enchanting year!

Nice clean pic of the swans caught in very good light.

Thanks. But how many swans in the photo? Answers on a postcard and the winner gets a copy of George Morgan's "Furthest Bay Gate Key!"

Ba,
There are 11 definate records for EG res, ranging from 1962-1971. Max 17 1st Jan 1963. Most of the summaries in the old reports stae: commuting between KNNR/EG res with no definate dates. I'm afraid you will hvae to go through the wild swan record cards at the NMGW if you want to precise dates etc.
I have imputted onto MM.
