Swan Song - For the Goose.

Got a call from the SSPCA Vets this morning telling me that the Pinkfoot goose had been put to sleep, apparently the break was so bad and infected that it was the kindest thing to do .
Really a shame when a bird gets a shattered wing, basically a death sentence for them. Maybe one day the Wildfowl shooters will get more pleasure from watching them than trying to blast them out of the sky !

Mute Swans (Cygnus olor ) are not as the name suggests devoid of sound. People think they are only capable of grunts and hisses, but if you listen to this short bit of video you will hear quite a variety of sounds which we don't understand, but they do !
