THE Isle of Wight has had the pleasure of some rare visitors this week.

A bevy of black swans were spotted at Newport Harbour and along the River Medina.

Black swans are large, nomadic water birds that breed mainly in Australia.

Notable for their mostly black plumage and red bills, the large birds are not often spotted on the Island.
