Whooper Swans in Warwickshire. — We are informed by Mr. C. A. Norris that two Whooper Swans (Cygnus cygnus) were seen by him at Compton Verney on the lower pool on a number of occasions from December 16th, 1945, till December 30th. On the first occasion on which they were noted the Whoopers were very noisy and were being much disturbed by the resident Mute Swans. Although absent on January 5th they were again seen on January 14th, 1946, by F/Sgt. E. L. Roberts.
