Whooper Swan's on the move

A significant movement of Whooper Swan in the area this morning. I had just 5 flying west over Harland Edge but there were 15 at Long Eaton, 12 over Leash Fen, and two groups totalling 38 at Carsington of which 16 landed on the reservoir.
The count for the Ouse Washes a couple of days ago was 7,885 Whooper and 2,813 Bewick's Swans so there will still be plenty left!

The mist was patchy at Chatsworth early on, which was quite dramatic at times, and a singing Dipper put on a nice show but it was quiet otherwise.
