Whoopers near Wark

Beautiful sight and sound of over a hundred Whooper Swans gathered in a fodder field to the east of Wark on the south side of the River Tweed. (grid ref: NT 845382). We counted 105 adults and 29 juveniles. At the Hirsel Estate, on the other side of the river at Coldstream, the Yews at the junction just north of the Arts and Craft Centre were attracting up to a dozen Mistle Thrushes plus a few Redwings  and Song Thrushes with their ripe berries.
