Whooper swan (Cygnus cygnus L.), Harbridge, Hampshire

Found by another birder (R.A. Hume) late this afternoon, in the field behind All Saints Church at Harbridge, Hampshire, shortly before my arrival. The bird was associating with a flock of 180 mute swan (Cygnus olor).

The local Bewick's swans (Cygnus columbianus), were not found.
