Nature-lovers can encounter two swan species in the lands of Northern Scotland. Whooper Swans fly here from Iceland and Bewick Swans from Siberia. Both visit Scotland to winter while the waters in their homelands are completely frozen and unsuitable for swimming. The seasons vary slightly: Whoopers can be observed between late September and April and simetimes they put off their departure and even nest in Scotland. Bewicks are present strictly from October to March.
