At the risk of me missing something obvious, that would be a (Mute) Swan.

I fit looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck... it probably isn't one of those! ^^^

To me, long-tailed tits are like mini pandas with wings. They're adorable little birds, and their call is so sweet!

they are indeed , unfortunately I'm not able to hear them generally. They were everywhere today, possibly half a dozen or more of them

I've succeeded in getting my two Grandsons aged 5 and 2 interested in watching the birds and I hope they'll always enjoy them
