Photographer's Note

As we were leaving the Iris Gardens, I had to cross a bit of grass to get to the gate. I spotted these three swans lined up as though they were about to have a foot race. Thought that was pretty funny.

I believe these three are Bewick swans.

The Bewick swan is native to Northern Russia from the Kanin Delta to the Lena Delta. The swan has also migrated to parts of Japan and winters in the British Isles, Northern Europe, Denmark, and Ireland. Their nests are generally made on small islands in river estuaries and lakes, or near tundra pools. They usually lay three to five eggs, which are incubated by the female alone for 29-30 days. Bewick swans pair up for life, and the death of one partner usually leads to the death of the other.
