BEWICK'S SWANS at Wyboston - 10 February

Six BEWICK'S SWANS (three adult and three imm) at Wyboston Lakes, also a pair of Smew. Note this site is private so please do not trespass. The gate i slocked. However, for all you year listers out there, you can view the lake from a footpath from Little Barford. From Eynesbury Tescos, head south into Little Barford past the power station and over the roundabout, 100 metres further and there is a small line of cottages on the left. You can park on the right and take the footpath over the field (probably passing two Egyptian Geese...) and to the river. Walk right a little to view the lake across the river. Note, the Smew left the lake and are probably on the river so do check up and down. Good numbers of other duck in the ice hole on this lake and a Snipe. (RIB/SCB)
