Interesting garden tick

I was standing downstairs in my jimjams, sending a text message at 08:05 when my ears were assaulted by some high-pitched, yelping hoots. What the...? I looked out of the window and there, flying over in V-formation were about 18 Bewick's Swans!

Viewing was slightly hindered by a) nearby rooftops, b) net curtains and c) branches of a tree in my garden, so it's a good job that a) they were calling, and that b) the clocks changed yesterday or I'd have been at work by now and missed them!

Even Steve Dudley hasn't got Bewick's On His List.
