Canada, Russia, Scandinavia and Svalbard
|Bewick's swan (WWT)|
For hundreds of thousands of migratory birds, far-flung places like Svalbard & Russia are their summer breeding grounds. But each year as the days start to shorten, these birds begin their journeys across land and sea, arriving hundreds and even thousands of miles later on the UK’s shores.
WWT aim to preserve the wetlands that these birds need to over-winter and build up their fat reserves before starting their incredible journey back to their northern breeding grounds next spring.
