The mute swan is a species of swan and a member of the waterfowl family Anatidae. It is native to much of Europe and Asia, and the far north of Africa. It is an introduced species in North America, Australasia and southern Africa.

It must be so much fun trying to woo your future lady when your a male swan, much better than us fellas trying the same thing with chocolates and flowers. If there is such a thing when I'm gone I might try and come back as a one, bring it on I say !

Out of the three species of wild swans to be found in the UK which can in the wild have a lifespan of up to 12 years. The Mute Swan is the less vocal one and is unique in making a vibrant throbbing sound with the wings when in flight. The Mute Swan is also the national bird of Denmark. A large group of swans can be called , school, ballet and regatta. No swan has ever broken any ones arm, this is a actually a complete myth.

Swan, largest waterfowl species of the subfamily Anserinae, is generally classified in the genus Cygnus. There are around 7 different species of swan found around the world. The size, colour and behaviour a swan individual is largely dependent on it's species and the area in which it lives.

Today swans are a threatened species of animal mainly due to hunting and habitat loss. Pollution (mainly water pollution) is also a major reason as why the swan populations are declining.

Mute Swan Cygnet - Cygnus Olor

 

Only a couple of days old. Really cute.

Taken River Stour, Bournemouth, Dorset

The were plenty of Mute Swans at Cape May this trip. I found it interesting to hear the sound they made as they flew, almost as though they were gasping for air with each wing stroke which they were of course. They were close enough that I went for a head shot with my long lens combination and captured this lovely creature.

Taken on Valentines Day so I can only assume they were hoping to look their best for dating their partner.
