Swans and ....more swans

As well as the thousands of overwintering geese we get on the marshes there’s also a lot of swans that come to feed. When there’s a very high tide the salt marsh gets flooded and the birds have to move further inland. Today's pic is of a group of swans in a field by the roadside just out of the village. A neighbour, who is a keen RSPB member, did a count and reckons there’s 124 but not all are in the photo.
Too cold to do much around the garden today. After 18°C in the greenhouse three days ago it was only 6°C today but I did manage to get part of the plot covered with black plastic to try and warm up the soil a bit in readiness for spring....whenever that might be.
