    Two swans have died after it is believed they were shot with an air gun in Pembrokeshire, a charity has said.
    The attack happened at Haverfordwest's Withybush Woods on Tuesday or Wednesday, leaving a female and a cygnet dead, according to Tinker's Hill Bird of Prey and Swan Rescue Centre. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-south-west-wales-37738839

    Photographed a week ago on Sunday the 16th October.  I went to try to photograph the Cormorant we saw while walking the dogs the afternoon before, unfortunately he didn't show.
