    Hi Geoff, I have just started subscribing to your daily emails on Natural Newstead and wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. I am a very amateur bird photographer and twitcher and love the daily dose of information and inspiration that you provide. I am also enlisting your help – if you can! I was walking around our local lake Walkers Lake, near between Donald and Marnoo, and saw this very strange sight. On the water, in the fog, were lots of coots and a couple of swans (there are usually more) but I could hear an unusual regular flapping in the water. What at first looked like a dog, or a lost otter, then appeared to have wings. It seemed most forlorn, moving erratically around the edge of the lake. I have included a movie of this strange sight. My conclusion was that it is an injured swan – or do they mate in the water? By the time I had walked around the lake all sign of it had gone. Do you have any suggestions as to it’s identity. I apologise for the poor footage, but fog seems to sap the colour out of everything, however I did see some dotterels once the fog started to lift, which I have included. I have tried to send it but the movie file is too large, so instead there is a link to Dropbox. I hope this works for you. Thanks for your time, and hopefully you can solve the mystery. Cheers, Prue McAllister ​ Mystery bird.mp4 ​
