Mute Swan as a rarity - the second record for Øygarden

Above and below: Sometimes Mute Swan can be an exciting species to see. These birds represented just the second occurrence of the species in Øygarden.
They also illustrated the advantage of having a camera along wherever one may be - these were seen whilst driving home from the office - luckily I had a compact superzoom with me for just such occurrences!
