I got an e-mail from Tim Jones today asking what time I had my "lone Swan" sighting on Friday (see comment on Wildfowl post). I had also been wondering, as a lone Bewick's Swan had past Spurn the same day. However I didn't know what time. Tim did. It tied in with my sighting. It went passed Holmpton at 2.15 and Spurn at 2.35. Had to be the same bird, didn't it?
Now then, the dilemma is...I couldn't ID the Swan with my bins as the distance was to great. Yellow could be seen on the bill through a poor image on my camera. I wrongly presumed Whooper on probability.
So...what to do? Interesting one. What would you do?
