Birds And Mute Swans On Visit To Gannochy Pond Perth Perthshire Scotland

Tour Scotland 4K Spring wildlife camera travel video of the sight and sounds of birds, mute Swans and Cygnets on a visit and trip to Gannochy Pond in Perth, Perthshire, Britain, United Kingdom. This pond is located at the corner of Annat Road and Dupplin Road. The mute swan is a very large white waterbird. It has a long S shaped neck and an orange bill with a black base and a black knob. It flies with its neck extended and regular, slow wingbeats. Some mute swans stay in their territories all year, while others move short distances and form winter flocks. In cold weather, some birds arrive from Europe into eastern England. The mute swan breeds across most of the United Kingdom, other than in northern Scotland, mid Wales and the moors of south east England. It's possible to see them anywhere there is a shallow lake, or a slow-flowing rivers, even in urban areas and parks. The name mute derives from it being less vocal than other swan species. Spring in the northern hemisphere technically starts on the 20 March, at the equinox, and lasts until the 20 or 21 June, the Summer solstice. This is also the case in Scotland.The months that make up the Spring season are March, April and May. However, for travelling at this time of year, I will be referring to April and May. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day. Find things to see and do in Scotland where you are always welcome.
