At the same time that we fed the Swans, etc. we visited the feeders - and this shows the conditions of poor light (so high-ish ISO), snowing and very windy

You're a braver man than me out in these conditions, far too cold.  ;)  Great shot though.  8)

A very nice shot indeed. :)

Superb shot  :tup: The snow on the tip of the beak is like a magical touch  :)

Looks more like the suet fat from the baited log to me than snow. ;)
