Start you in gently with some Whooper Swans photos courtesy of Ronald Surgenor. Congratulations to Ronald who got engaged recently (not to a Whooper Swan we hasten to add!). We think it was because Ronald had begun to run out of Christmas present ideas and thought a sparkler would do the job for Christmas 2012! Good thinking Ronald, now you will just have to think of a plan how to get out of it! Tell her you have become a Nobirder that should work!
