Whooper Swans and a walker in Machir Bay, Isle of Islay


Picture of a flock of Whooper Swans flying over a beach with a lone walkerA November morning in Machir Bay, a lone walker on Kilchoman beach while a flock of Whooper Swans is passing high above. They typically don’t winter on Islay, they just pass through on their way to Ireland. Several hundred of them passed within a few days during my November visit.
