Here is some information about the Bewick's Swan:
Bewick's swan adults are white all over and young birds greyish with a pinkish bill. They feed in fields on leftover potatoes and grain, although in their breeding grounds they eat aquatic plants and grass.
Two species of swan come to the UK each winter, the whooper swans migrate from Iceland and Bewick's swans make the journey from Siberia. Bewick's swans have more oval, rounded yellow patches on either side of their bill. They are the smallest swan species to visit the UK and are not much bigger than a Canada goose. Their calls are more reminiscent of an excited dog.
