Whooper Swans at night

On Friday night I was outside at 9.30pm listening to at least four male Tawny Owls when I heard Whooper Swans in the distance. They were on course to come right over us and the magical trumpeting sound of their calls amplified as they did so. The previous night I had heard Pink- footed Geese also migrating north on the way back to their breeding grounds. The Whoopers had probably come from Norfolk on their journey back to Iceland.
