Slimbridge Swan Lake

General Information

Description Slimbridge Swan Lake, in Gloucestershire, Great Britain, was visited by double the normal number of Bewick swans arriving from Siberia in the winter of 2002-2003. Bewicks are the smallest and rarest members of the swan family. The swans fly about 2,500 miles from Siberia each autumn and winter. Most hatched only 12 weeks before making the long migration. The Wildlife & Wetlands Trust attributes the high migration to cold weather across Europe and easterly winds.
