Whooper Swan spotted in Carmarthenshire – A rare visitor to South Wales!

The whooper swan is a very rare breeding bird in the UK, but has much larger populations that spend winter here after a long journey from Iceland. It has more yellow on its yellow-and-black bill than the Bewick’s Swan.
2 different sightings within Carmarthenshire both happened just last week, at the end of November 2021
