Bewick's Swans at Stithians Reservoir

Eight Bewicks Swans at Stithians reservoir represent the highest county total since 1999, when nine were recorded at Tresillian River.  Bewick's Swan are by no means annual in Cornwall, there being at least two absent years in the last ten.  (Farley Rice originaly found seven birds at Stithians with the eighth appearing later, possibly the bird from Porth Res.)

Eight Bewick's Swans; four juvs and four adults.
