A new species for me here! I noticed a pair of mute swans / knoppsvaner hanging out in the bay this afternoon. Young birds? No orange bill…

Later, they disappeared behind Malvikodden, the peninsular on the other side of the bay. Then, suddenly this evening they flew back westwards right past my window. I swear one of them winked at me ;)
This is the second observation of this species in my kommune Malvik, the first only 6 days ago of a single bird with a group of Whooper Swans / sangsvane. Mute swans are moving north in Norway.
