Whooper Swans Swans

The Whooper Swan is the Eurasian counterpart of the North American Trumpeter Swan. They are quite noisy birds with a deep honking call and despite their size are strong fliers.


Typical Adult is 149-160cm (55-63in).


Aquatic plants, sedges, pond-weed which they can reach with their long necks, and they will also graze on grass when out of water. They will also eat animal matter such as insect larvae, tadpoles, small fish, small frogs, worms, and molluscs.


Wetlands, lakes, rivers, estuaries, marshes, floodplains, and pasture in Iceland, northern Scandinavia, Russia, and Siberia. Winters further south in western Europe including the UK, Mediterranean Sea, Black sea, Caspian Sea, China, Korea, and Japan.


Late May in Iceland, or mid-June further north.
