Tony Donaldson contacted us concerning a solitary  Whooper Swan at the Quoile pondage which appears to be constantly agitated with one of it's legs, Tony cannot make out whether it's tangled fishing line or something of that nature. If anyone is around that area Tony would be grateful on any news of the welfare of the bird.     

Our thanks to Cameron Moore who kindly sent in these two photos showing three different species of Grebe. The top photo shows a Great Crested Grebe (left bird) and a Slavonian Grebe. The second photo is of a Little Grebe.
