Flock of Tundra Swans flying over London
by Lily and James
Migrating Tundra Swans
We saw a very large 'vee' of them flying over our house in South London this morning between 9:30 and 10 am. We are about 5 minutes north of the 401 near Wellington Road.
We had no idea what they were! At first we thought that they were regular swans - which I had never heard of flying in such huge number in a vee formation - not to mention that the sound of these birds was not the same as regular swans I had heard in the past.
It was a large 'vee' containing more birds than I've ever seen in a Canada Goose 'vee'.
What an exciting experience!
Edit: We also heard that there were migrating Swans on the ice seen from Pearce Park and Tyrconnell on March 13th & 14th and also some flying over the lake (going inland) and in the Fingal area west of St Thomas.
Thank you Lily and James for your submission to our website!
