Hi Trevor
A report for the beleaguered Baywatch blog!!
The Whooper Swan first reported at Par Beach Pool was still showing well this afternoon. After a facebook discussion with friends from the Helston area, it appears that this is NOT the same bird as that on Helston Boating Lake.
Pics attached
Trust you're well?
