Black swan pair, large black birds, tall necks and red beaks. Red eyes. The feathers on the back (wings) have lighter edges and a sort of ruffled appearance when folded back.
Tidal lake in coastal farmland
This pair have been seen here on the Flagstaff inlet for weeks now, quite attached to each other. There are a few other pairs that hang around down the coast in the farm paddocks. Many years ago I used to do swan counts on this inlet and most days in the season there would be more than a hundred. but now sadly less than twenty in the whole district.
