Mute Swan Family(video)

Mute Swans are one of the heaviest flying birds in the world and the only resident species of swan in the UK. In flight they produce a throbbing “wing music”. Their name comes from the fact that they are quieter than the migrant swan species but can still hiss and trumpet weakly. The largest Cobbs(males) can sometimes even weigh over 18kg, however this is unusual.

  1. It’s interesting to see how the cygnets copy the actions of their parents. A lovely video and I like the music.
