Paul Osborn asked if seeing Black Swans in a open paddock away from water is unusual and Chris Baxter commented that they do this in their 100s on Kangaroo Island. Sounds like although they may be a different colour (Black Swan theory and all that), they forage in the same way as their northern hemisphere cousins. I recall seeing several fields full of a mixed bag of Mute, Bewicks & Whooper Swans in the area around Welney in the Cambridgeshire fens just over 3 years ago.
